This was a very challenging assignment getting acquainted with Audacity. I worked and worked and worked and couldn’t get much going on my own so I went to the trust old YouTube. Searched Audacity basics and got myself on my feet. I have created around a 20 second story for my character Gambino De Luca. Gambino we all know is a mobster and this 20 second story with no words fits him perfectly. It starts off on a winter day with birds chirping and snow falling and then turns to Gambino strutting through the snow. There are no words so we don’t quite know what Gambino is after but he is certainly up to something. As he is walking through the snow, cars are passing and then it gets interesting. A fight breaks out which involves Gambino but the listener is not quite sure why. Of course Gambino walks away scratch free and the 20 second sound effect story is ended with Gambino pouring himself a drink and taking a drag from a cigarette. Two things that everyone knows Gambino for. To be honest I found this very challenging and being my first audio assignment I completed, it is expected. I hope to get good with audacity and it will most definitely make the assignments to come much easier. I have posted the Sound effect story below. Enjoy!
