Song Mashup

Hi there! This assignment was the Music Mashup (3 1/2 stars), where I took two completely separate songs and put them together. I decided to take Adele's Rolling in the Deep and Imagine Dragons' It's time and put them together. I took the vocals to Rolling in the Deep and the instrumental to It's Time.  And I have to say I had fun with the process but I also think it was a complete fail. I just couldn't get them to line up so that it sounded decent. I first used the songs beause the both had the same tempo...Read More

Aladdin Soundtrack Mashup

Hiya! This assignment, Movie as Radio (3 1/2 stars), was a lot of fun! We were supposed to take a soundtrack to a movie and combine all of the tracks to create a 10 minute or less. I thought this assignment would be so fun if I did a Disney movie. I grew up as a Disney kid and I knew that I could do my favorite movie. So I decided to mashup the Aladdin soundtrack. I love this movie, and I thought it would be perfect.  There is a good mix of vocals and instrumentals to the soundtrack. So what...Read More

Breakfast Time!

Hey guys! This assignment, Sound Effects Story (3 1/2 stars), was actually really fun! I was able to play around with audacity more than I did the last audio week. We had to tell a story without using any vocals. At first I thought this was a challenge as I was brainstorming ideas I could do for this, but then I just asked myself, what do you do on a daily basis? And there first thing that popped into my head, was breakfast. I always make sure I eat breakfast before I start my day. If I don't, my day will...Read More

Reversing a Song

Another awesome assignment this week is to reverse a song and see who can guess it first! I thought this would be a fun little game so I decided to try it out. I first found the song, with the help of my room mate, I then tried to reverse the song in iMovie but I eventually found that Audacity was the best bet in reversing the song. Although it had the easiest option, I had some trouble getting it to export to MP3 format to upload to Sound Cloud. I was able to figure it out with the help...Read More

Mashup to Imagine Dragons

One audio assignment that really stood out to me was the So and So's Greatests Hits. I immediately thought of different bands that I could possibly do for this one and my mind jumped to Imagine Dragons. Imagine Dragons is one of my favorite bands and I thought this would be pretty easy to do. I decided to pick the 5 most popular songs that they have and put them all together. I decided to use Garage Band, which is the Apple version of Audacity to create the mashup. I already had the songs within my iTunes so it was...Read More
