Happiness Through Sound

First Audio Assignment is completed!

This is actually my first time using Audacity. It took me a while to make 1:40 sound. I went to tutorial in UMW’s Digital Knowledge Center, it helped me a lot. If I did not go, I would probably had hard time to this assignment. My assignment is to show emotions through sounds (3 points). About 45 seconds from beginning, I used church bell sound effect to give sprightly atmosphere. After the bell sound ends, the happy background music comes out with bird chirping sound. Whenever I woke up in morning, and hear birds are chirping, it made my days to start feeling good, and think that I might hear some good news. Lastly, I put baby laughing sound. I love babies, so when I hear babies are laughing, I laugh with them and sometimes they make me to forget worries and just smile like I have no concern.

All the sounds are downloaded in Youtube and changed into mp3 files so I can uploaded it in Audacity. I set the bell sound at the beginning and when it ends, I put happy music as background and located the rest of the sounds in the place where I want to put. I played with the effects that are provided. I mostly experienced fade in and fade out to make all the sounds goes smoothly. When I’m done I exported into mp3 file so I could be uploaded in SoundCloud.
