My Dreary Morning Ritual
Whats The Story Morning Glory? (2 Stars)
This audio clip includes my morning ritual. This ritual have been the same for a long time. Of course, the first sound you hear is my alarm clock. I have love-hate relationship with this device. Its the main reason I wake up so I can go class and/or work on time. However, I do get annoyed that I have to get up to turn the alarm clock off. As you could probably tell the irritation from my voice I am not a morning person. The next sound you would hear is my feet dragging across the floor to bathroom. Then you will hear me brush my teeth and take a shower.
I chose these sounds only because the events that happen my morning ritual vary. Sometimes I would eat breakfast, sometimes I just drive to campus or work. Or sometime I hit the snooze button on my day off.
This ritual have been consistent throughout all of my life. I hope yours is not as annoying…..
Your Theme Song (4 Stars)
I chose the audio assignment “Your Theme Song”, well because I’ve always wanted to create one, and now I have a great excuse to do so. That being said, this assignment took a me almost an hour to create because I had to chose, which songs and sound effects I wanted to include in my theme song. The background music is “Going Under” by the band Evanescence. I chose them because I love their songs. The sound effects included in theme song are explosions, a rocket starting up and an Irish flute playing.
All of the sound effects I got from freesound.com. My goal was to show the listener that my theme song is fast paced, complex, mysterious and convoluted. I felt my theme song met all of these requirements.
Emotions Through Sound (3 Stars)
For this assignment I chose four sounds that represented my character Marcus Jackson.
The first sound you hear is anger and frustration. He lost one of his new friends he made while he was on his road trip. The second sound is the sadness of burying his friend and him just letting out all of his pain. The third sound is happiness and laughter when something wonderful happened to him. The last sound you hear is Marcus finally uplifting the weight of his shoulders.
I hope you guys enjoyed this clip. It took a long time to make these sounds. The background music I found from freesound.com. The voices were all me. The screaming part especially, was rough on my voice, but I felt it was worth it.
Movie Voice Machines – (2.5 Stars)
Marcus just realized that his parents might call him to see how is doing. So, he quickly made a short voicemail. Although part of him feel this is a complete waste of time, he may receive an important message in the future…..
I chose to do this audio assignment because I want to give the audience a better idea of the mindset of Marcus. Right now, he is a shaken, stubborn, annoyed and still a bit depressed. He still has a long way to go until he sees the light at the end of a very, very, dark tunnel.
This is my DS106 Bumper for Noir 106. It is about 18 seconds long. I use my best raspy voice with jazz playing in the background. Short and Sweet. This was one of my favorite assignment for this class so far.
Line Remix – (3 Stars)
This assignment wanted us to remix a famous line and create a short story. I decided to use the famous line from the first Spider-Man (2002); “With great power comes great responsibility.” I decided to tell a story about my future self and how I finally accomplish my goal. I reflect on my past actions into getting becoming an CEO.
Soundboard Conversation – (4 Stars)
I called my boy Samuel L. Jackson to help me out with this audio assignment. I had it all planned out in the beginning, but I lost my notes. So when calling Samuel, I couldn’t remember what we were going to talk about. Lets just say, Samuel wasn’t too pleased with me.
