WEEK 6!!!!!

Weekly Summary!!!

YAYAY radio talkshow week!!

This week we got together and made a group for our radio talkshows. I was able to find a group fairly easy due to connections on twitter which was awesome!! We weren’t able to start a lot of planning due to miscommunications and busy schedules but we are meeting very soon and can’t wait to get started on this assignment. We decided to have our talkshow based on a topic we discussed throughout this class, what we did before the internet and how much impact the internet has on us. I am very excited to meet with my classmates and begin our talkshow.

I have designed a logo/sticker for our radio talk show, I wasn’t able to upload a design I made to it but my classmate is going to help me with that so we are able to use it for our talkshow. I used pixlr app on my computer to create this logo/sticker.

Audio Assignments:

This week we were to complete 10 stars worth of audio assignments, mostly to help get in gear our talkshow.

For my first audio assignment I completed the “Rhythms with Things” assignment. This was worth 3 stars and I was to create a rhythms with everyday objects… I used a water bottle and spoon… I used soundcloud to record and after I was done I uploaded my recording to my soundcloud page. I will post the link below. This assignment was a lot of fun to create.

The second audio assignment I completed was called “Real Housewives Tagline”. For this assignment I was to create a Tagline for myself I was was to be on of the Real Housewives on the show. If you haven’t seen the show before… When they introduce each housewife there is a 5 second tagline that is something that they either live by or believe to be true when describing their self. It took my awhile to think of one but I was finally able to do so. I recorded and uploaded my recording to soundcloud. I will post the link below. This assignment was worth 3 stars.

For my final audio assignment I completed the “sound of your day” assignment. For this I was to record sounds throughout my day and put them all together. I used iMovie to complete this assignment. I was able to upload my sounds from my phone right onto the iMovie template. Lots of weird sounds in my day but I had fun completing this assignment. This was worth 4 stars and I posted my sounds to soundcloud and will post the link below.

Daily Creates

YAYAY another fun week of completing three new daily creates and posting them via twitter. I really enjoy completing these assignments because it allows for conversation and connection with my other classmates on twitter. This weeks creates were a lot hard to complete than usual but I was still able to get them done. I met my talkshow group member from commenting on her daily create from last week so thats super exciting!! I will post the link to my twitter below!!

audio assignments

“sound effect story”

For this assignment I used iMovie to create a “story” using five sound effects. On the iMovie application there are a list of many sound effects to chose from so I didn’t have to use freesound.org to create my story. I had a little trouble getting my sounds to upload to soundcloud, but I am sure to be more aware as to how to use soundcloud very soon. Below I have attached my sound effect story, I had a lot of fun creating this. https://soundcloud.com/user-157350536/my-movie-1 This assignment is worth 3 1/2 stars ….

“music mash”

To create this assignment I, once again, used iMovie to be able to blend two songs together to make a ‘music mash’ of a sense. I wasn’t able to download the file to soundcloud but I will provide a copy of what I did to this post. I used “Don’t” by Ed Sherran, and “Should of said No” by Taylor Swift in my music mashup. This was a lot more difficult than I expected it to me. Also the inability to upload to soundcloud didn’t help either. This assignment is worth 4 stars and is attached below.

 “what a song means to you’

For this assignment we were to find a song that means a lot of us and have the song play with an audio of why it means so much to you. Due to audacity not working I had to use soundcloud for this assignment and was able to have the music and audio together so I uploaded them separate. Mean by Taylor Swift means a lot and is a song for anyone who is being bullied or going through a hard time to know that you can do or be anything you want in life and one mean person can’t tare you down.

This assignment was worth 3 1/2 stars!
