This was based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/row-row-polyphony/). A polyphony is when a subsequent chorus of the same verse chimes in during a song. So with this assignment it was a matter of not only recording the base song, in this case row row row your boat, but having subsequent verses of row row row your boat join in. It was fairly simple to make although really odd to listen to, especially with my inability to sing.
I did this based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/sounds-effects/) We had to make a sound effect. One type of sound effect I really like are quiet or subtle ones, so I went with a sort of quiet clinking crackle noise. https://www.freesound.org/people/Shamilt2/sounds/382754/
I made this based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/favorite-song/). The assignment wanted us to take one of our favorite song’s and remove the lyrics, while trimming it down to around 30 seconds or so. I find a lot of songs sound odd to me without lyrics, however “kids with guns” by Gorillaz is pretty good without lyrics as it just becomes a very relaxed beat.
This was based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/creat-a-ds106-radio-bumper/). Royalty free music found here (http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music/track/straight). This assignment taught me how to import background music and edit it in ways that it did not overpower my quiet voice. I also had to look into fair use rules and royalty free music, which was interesting to learn about.
This was based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/sound-effects-story/). I tried to convey a story of someone gaming through both a success and failure. I tried to indicate success with the happy chime, but failure with the repetitive laser beeping sound. I feel like it kind of conveys what I was imagining but only if the context is there.
This was based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/fictional-radio-ad/). This assignment was a ton of fun to work on mainly because I love the twisted world of invader zim. Everything there is grotesque and horrible so it is a ton of fun to separate yourself and pretend to be there sometimes.
This was based on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/have-a-phone-conversation-with-yourself/). This assignment was fun to do albeit pretty embarasing considering I do not talk much in general so having a clip of me saying goofy things is a tad bit of a nightmare for me. It was at least kind of fun pretending to be the goofy milkman spy I came up with.
This is my take on the assignment found here (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/what-a-song-might-mean-to-you/). I decided to choose something people had most likely not heard before that still feels amazing to me. Below is my song. And here is my reasoning behind the song.
