Are You a Cool Kid?

In a very productive edition of audio assignments, I was instructed to make a radio commercial for an 80’s product. This actually worked out perfectly because for my upcoming group radio show assignment, we need to have commercials, so this gave me an opportunity to multipurpose my work to achieve two goals. For some reason…

Tongue Twister CHAMP

In yet another edition of audio assignment, I was tasked to become the tongue twister champion of the world. Not really, but it may as well have been that with how difficult it is for me to get through a tongue twister even once. The goal was to quickly say a tongue twister and and…

Ultimate Workout Mix!

For today’s edition of audio assignments, I was tasked with making a mix tape. It seemed like a fun thing to do, because with all the new software and platforms out these days like pandora and spotify, I haven’t sat down and made my own mix tape or playlist in years. As more of a…

Optimal Bumper Accessory

I’m not quite sure why, but when I saw the example of a bumper sticker for an option for a design project I was immediately set on that as my final option. Maybe it’s because bumper stickers, while still around a bit, seem like more a relic of the past to go along with the…

Lets Get This Show On The Road

We started our group assignment strong by figuring out a time early in the week for all of us to meet up. Tuesday we all got together in a reserved room in the HCC on UMW campus to get our plans on track. After introducing ourselves, we got down to business. The main goal was…

Weekly Summary 5

The theme of audio related assignments led to a recurring theme in completion that was pretty surprising to me, difficulty starting. With almost every assignment this week, the first step was the most difficult/time consuming part. Maybe this style of work doesn’t match my style of creativity, or maybe it is just a coincidence. Either…

Death from Above

In an attempt to get better at audio storytelling I dug deep to tell a story using only noises, instead of verbal communication. This one for me was by far the most difficult assignment of the week, but it ended up being fun once I started piecing it all together. With everything else being so…

Door to Jurassic Park

In another instant classic audio assignment, the goal is to take a simple everyday noise and make it not so “simple” and “everyday”. My mind couldn’t really grasp both sides at once for something that could turn into something else, so I left it up to fate. I look up some simple sounds you may…

Not the Sickest Beat in the World, Just a Tribute

For this fun little audio assignment, the task was to create a sick beats to end all sick beats. I spent a lot of time just trying to figure out where to even start. I’m not much of a musically minded person, so I felt like a log adrift until I remembered that the sickest…

Smoothest Bumper You Heard Today

One mission, one task, create the best DS106 radio show bumper possible. Guess what, mission accomplished. For some reason whenever I think of radio voice transitions, all I can imagine is that old school smooth jazz cliche. Obviously that led to my only option of using that style for my own bumper. I started recording…
