    My Own Theme Song

    Assignment link: http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/your-theme-song/ I couldn’t help myself when I saw an assignment that involved writing your own theme song. I chose to write my own theme from scratch. I used FL Studio to recreate something I had already written on my bass. The long winded way to do this assignment would be to record my own … Continue reading My Own Theme Song

    Slow it down

    For this assignment you had to make a song 800% slower. I used the song Gold by Kiiara. After slowing it down the song was thirty minutes long, so I had to shorten it down to fifteen minutes to get it to download. The end effect of slowing the song down makes it sound distorted […]

    Uber Awesome Digital Media Radio Show Proposal :3

    My digital Media class will be creating a radio show this semester. My professor has asked for my thoughts on topics. I’m not very good at thinking of general ideas or topics because I am honestly more of a detail person, so here is something very specific we could do on one particular episode. I have a […]

    Week 5

    This week was another busy one. We focused on audio, which is probably the thing I needed the most work on. We had more stars assigned this week which kept us even busier, but in the long run I got it all done. I wrote a blog post that explains the significance of audio in […]

    Sound Effect Story

    This assignment was a fun one. The assignment is worth three and a half stars, which puts me at eleven and a half stars. The idea is simple, use sound effects to tell a story. I may have bent the rules a little bit by having a sound effect of a woman crying for help, but […]

    Daily Create – Click Bait

    For one of this weeks daily creates, we were to make the #ds106 syllabus into click bait! Here was mine: #tdc1718 Woman opens #ds106 syllabus. You won’t believe what happens next!@ds106dc — Kylie Heronemus (@KylieHeronemus) September 21, 2016

    The contest nobody could win

    For this assignment you had to take fragments of a song (under one second) and put them together. Then people try to guess what all the songs are. (If you don’t know all the songs there’s a list below). Hopefully this video stays up since I’ve had a lot of trouble trying to post audio. […]

    Sound Makes all the Difference

    Sound plays an important role in telling a story. The wrong ambiance can completely destroy the coherence of a scene. For example, a midnight scene on a highway would make absolutely no sense with rain forest ambiance playing in the background. In my digital media class, we looked at this extreme example of sound completely […]

    Weekly Summary 05

    This week I tried to be a good student for once and do my assignments early. It felt weird actually getting my work done early. And by that I meant some of the work. I was still crunched on time towards the end, however, I had a little extra time to breathe this time! The […]

    For this assignment you had to make a story using at least 5 different songs. Took me almost an hour to finally get it to post somewhere (which ended up being YouTube). Ignore the black nothingness of a video I had to keep on there so it would upload. *What I wrote when I thought […]

    Radio show ideas

    Well a good one that’s on my mind right now would be copyright infringement, and how my content got blocked from soundcloud just because it sounded similar to a song I’ve never even heard of. Other topics….. how about everyone’s favorite candy, and how they’re wrong because it’s not reeces? Seriously though, lets just pick … Continue reading "Radio show ideas"

    Sound effect story

    So, I had a nice little story all done up, and soundcloud automatically removed it, claiming it was copyrite infringement. It’s under review now, and should be up as soon as they approve it(I took all the sounds from freesound.org so there shouldn’t be a problem). I’ll post it when it gets put back up.

    A Day of 16 Year Old Bri

    For this assignment, Teenage Angst, you were supposed to read an old diary or journal entry you wrote when you were a teenager. I mean I still am a teenager…but I did one from when I was 16 years old. In this assignment you were also supposedly supposed to read an entry when you were angsty. […]

    Can You Guess?

    In this assignment, The Contest That Nobody Could Win, we were meant to “Take six very short fragments (less than one second each) from six different songs and ensemble them into a single piece.” Since I wanted to use songs that were already on my phone, AND that most people wouldn’t be able to guess most […]

    Tuning in to get Turnt

    This is my response to the Create a Radio Bumper assignment. I had to create a short radio bumper for the Ds106 radio station. When I hear the term “bumper,” the first thing I think of is cars, so it only made sense to base the bumper around that. I started with a car crash […]
