For this audio assignment I have to tell a story using nothing but sound effects so no verbal communication… only sound effects. I have to use at least five different sounds that you find online and the story can be no longer than 90 seconds. Lastly, It has to be about your ds106 character, in my case , it’s Jota. I forgot to make a post about my character earlier so I think now would be a good time to introduce him as all of my other character assignments wont make sense until I do so.
“One thing for sure, Jota has a dream. He has a desire of owning his own multi-million dollar estate with a supermodel wife, driving a red Ferrari 458 around town.
Born and raised in one of the party capitals of America, Miami Fl, Jota knows how to boogie like no other. As a 25 year old college graduate, he is taking his chances by opening his own nightclub. His posh grandma is in love with the idea and decided to help fund the business. He also has the brains on how to get it done. Graduating at the top of his class with a degree in Business Management from Miami, Jota has it all.
Jota knows its gonna take a lot of hard work to get his club world known, but he is willing to do what ever it takes…”
Anyways, here is my sound story!
I first downloaded Audacity and played around with that, I even went to the digital knowledge center for some quick tips that really proved to be useful. Afterwards, I had to think of a story to share that would be plausible with my character. Once I gathered my thoughts, I then proceeded to www.freesound.org and created a free account to start downloading sounds. I made a folder on my desktop so I could put all of the sound files in one easy to find location. After I dowloaded all the sounds in order they would appear in the final track, I opened up Audacity and dragged the new sound files from my folder, one-by-one, into the app. It took me a little over a hour and a half to complete this assignment.
