Try to escape

Sound Scapes (4 1/2) stars told us to use only found sounds in order to create a sound piece. I chose this assignment because it reminded me of one of the assignments we had done previously in this class, so I had a basic idea of how to start it. Another reason why I chose it was because I thought it would be a good assignment to relate to my character and possibly to use for our radio show “the MaNOIRpulators.”

In order to d this assignment, I picked a bunch of sounds to use. Some are similar to the ones I had used before, others are new but related to some of my previous posts about Edie, and others I added to tweak the previous stories for effect. All of the sounds I used can be found on www.freesound.org. I then added them all to Audacity, and moved them around into the order I wanted them and I repeated some of those sounds which I thought should continue for a longer period of time. For a few of them, I adjusted the speed or the pitch by clicking on Change Speed  or Change Pitch from the Effects menu.

This sound scape tells a story with sound. It is related to a bunch of my previous posts, but the object most obviously linking them is the chirping of a canary. It gets a little gross in the middle, just so you’re aware, anyways I hope you like it!
