I’m very excited for the Audio Section to begin. I was really into the video segment of the course, but hopefully this will be just as fun. Not too much to report today as it was mostly a transitional week moving from video to audio.
I did two daily creates, one audio and one picture one from the tdc website.
Daily Create – Feb. 21st was a nostalgic picture of myself riding a camel when I traveled to Israel a few summers ago.
Audio Daily Create – Feb. 22nd was an audio daily create I put together. I recorded myself making breakfast and used Audacity to trim the clip and make it flow better. Thought it came out pretty well for the first one.
I also enjoyed the readings for Monday, even though they were a little bit long. I responded to Susan Douglas’ article entitled “Listening In” here…Response – “Listening In”. I thought the article was interesting and it made be think about what radio was, is, and will become, that is if it is even able to last into the future. I took some time to think and write about how I utilize radio and audio in my everyday life, and it truly bewildered me that I really don’t listen to much radio. Audio is usually music while I walk to class, workout or do homework. Most other audio comes with video when I watch television or video clips online. There isn’t much time where I solely listen to other people talk, so hopefully this section of the course will change that.
