I have wanted to learn Audacity for pretty much the last couple of years. Why did I not teach myself? That shit is hard! I have tried the YouTube tutorials, and nothing really helped. So I pretty much kept the idea locked away and went on with life. Opportunities present themselves, you just have to listen, watch, and pay careful attention.
My idea for this next blog is an intro I can use in my radio station show; something different than you hear on a regular basis when the other DJ’s are on. This seems very broad as an idea in general. There are a couple different ideas for specific things I would like to incorporate into it, but the overall sound could change as I am working on it. I think my ideas revolve around everything I can immediately think of that I have adored, or found funny.
I started my project the same day as we knew we officially had to do Project 3. I am happy we get to do it! After the tutorial I am thinking that this might be easier than I thought, not that I even thought it would be “hard” I just knew it was not something I was familiar with. I know this will help me in my future classes. I am a Public Communications major. I have been thinking about looking into a minor that has something to do with animation, directing or visual production type things.
As I working on this project this weekend, I realized there is very much a rhythm behind creating audio tracks. There is a flow that is like a natural wave washing upon the shore. None of it can be too chaotic or it doesn’t keep its proper course. Too many different things make for “noise.” Noise is when there is to many sounds and it keeps the listener from understanding the true message, because everything you see, and hear is a message, whether you know it or not. This project was about audio communication, and I am excited to take this knowledge with me into the future.
I have a lot of interests and the best thing I think there is about college is the more education I get the more my ideas for my future evolve. I love that! I hope everyone else is as stoked about this project as I am! The more I get to dabble in the things I am interested in, the more excited I am to continue on into my next semesters.
