week five summary!

I listened to “Moon Graffiti” after watching the two videos from RadioLab’s Jad Abumrad. Then, I blogged my thoughts on its use of sound to tell the story, and compared it to Abumrad’s ideas. I also created a radio bumper for ds106 radio! This was my first audio editing assignment. Then, I made a short […]

radio show ideas

I think we could do a radio show listening to one of Bob Ross’s videos, and commenting on how his inspiration guides our class and contributes to our theme. Or, the whole show could just be a conversation about his ideas relating to class, citing some of his videos. A different idea would be to […]

This week, I created a radio bumper! I started by learning how to use Audacity with this resource, since I have never done audio editing before.

(Under CC BY […]

moon graffiti

I listened to “Moon Graffiti,” which employed sound effects and changes in sound to tell the story ‘what if Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin actually crashed on the moon?’ I thought the techniques they employed to illustrate the story were very interesting and creative.

ds106 radio

Monday’s ds106 radio show was very interesting. It was not at all what I was expecting (although I didn’t really know what to expect haha). We listened to an analysis that reflected on climate change through using an old radio show. It demonstrated how sound art in the old radio show really illustrated the infrastructure […]
