I will be leaving the country bright and early tomorrow morning for Spring Break. Headed down to the Dominican Republic to stay for a week in Punta Cana. I’m pretty excited after a long week of 3 exams and lots of work. Had to do my weekly review a little earlier than Sunday since I won’t have access to the Internet (OH NO!!)
This week was a great full first week of Audio. I think we all realized how little we embrace and listen to radio. Furthermore, I’m not sure if we all have a common, overarching definition of what radio is. I enjoyed listening to radio shows. Radiolab: “Deception” and This American Life: “Valentine’s Day 2013″ were very enjoyable and were the first radio shows/podcasts I have listened to in quite some time. My thoughts on the Radiolab piece can be found here Deception – Response.
Daily Create – Feb. 26th: I did a fun one spelling the word “Create” in a unique way. I used pencils, pens, and highlighters on my desk to spell it out.
Audio Create 2: As far as the audio daily create, I used an everyday thing as a musical instrument. I utilized my mouth and the sounds I could make to attempt beat boxing. It was fun and I felt kind of silly doing it and listening to it. I’m not much of a musician nor do I have much musical talent, but I think it came out well. I didn’t wanna do too much production and alteration to it, I wanted it to sound a pure and live as possible.
The Vox Pop was fun and interesting. It was cool doing the interviews, getting the audio, and then producing the final product. It was the first time I really played around with some of the tools in Audacity and I really saw some the possibilities when it comes to my future audio productions.
Lastly, I came up with my idea for the class radio show. The theme is “Dating” and I plan on doing something surrounding the “long distance relationships” that two of my roommates have.
