Bumps and Bruises

My DS 106 radio bumper! (2 1/2 stars)

For this Post I wanted to try make something that was a little bit creepy. At first I wanted to make something that was more “horror film” than the noir of the 1940s and 50s, but I decided I would try to do something that was more relevant to those times. One thing I do like about this bumper is that it can be interpreted a couple different ways. See if you can figure out why it is called “without a knock.”



In order to do this post, I used sounds both from GarageBand and a few from the free-sounds webpage that we were advised to use. Instead of downloading the sounds, I just re-recorded them onto my computer because it was easier to get them into GarageBand in this way. Also, it wouldn’t take up the space I had in my computer. I did enjoy overlapping some of the sounds for this project– It gives it a more realistic sound than when one effect would just stop and another would begin.

I also used a jazz clip I found on GarageBand.
