radio

Now that we have a #ds106 radio up and running creating a 15 to 30 second bumper for the station. What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_(broadcasting)). So for ds106 it should certainly include "DS106 Radio" and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.

Unit 4

I watched two clips by Ira Glass’ who offers his definition of storytelling within television and radio.

And Into the Night He Went

At first, I thought this would be a daunting task. I was sort of lost when I first opened Audacity. It looked really clunky, to begin with, and had a few symbols I’d never seen before, like the Envelope Tool and Multi-Tool. I’d used Ableton Live and, to a lesser …

I was really nervous for this assignment–just like the last one–but once I got going it was really easy–also like the last one.  I just used an O.A.R song I had in my iTunes, loaded it directly into Audacity, cut to the beginning (there were no words.  Tried using the vocal remover but it didn’t work very well), and then recorded my voice on a separate track, mashed the two together, and that was pretty much it. …

Things that go BUMPER in my head!

The Assignment:

“What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into. So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.”

I found this assignment a ton of fun because I got to try my hand at creating a bumper, or short audio clip designed for radio shows, in order to remind listeners of the station, and in my opinion, to reach out to listeners and emphasize the…

DS106 Radio Bumper

D-D-D-D-DS106!…

I think I just made a bumper… woot woot

AHHHHH! Okay, so I’m way excited!!
One of the most difficult assigments in week 4 for ds106 was to make a bumper. I know, I didn’t know what it was either but a little research goes a long way.  So basically a bumper is a small introduction that many radio…

Can’t Fight The Feeling

Wowwwwww so now that I know how to use Audacity, this audio editing is SO MUCH EASIER. I was so overwhelmed. Always am when I see a new program on the computer and have no knowledge of what to do with it and how to work anything on it. So…

Put the bumpers up!

For my DS106 Radio bumper I had to do something hockey related. I couldn’t not do something hockey related. I’m just so sad there is not going to be a hockey season *sobs*.
I chose to use freesound.org to find clips to use, I surprisingly did not have to hunt…

Radio Bumper

So this bumper was pretty easy to create. I mashed up myself saying “ds106 radio”, “Clubbed to Death” by Rob Dougan, and some crazy radio static, just not exactly in that order. The beauty of audacity is that you can layer these things and play with your own recordings. I…

Bumper Time

I managed to finish my first ds106 bumper woo woo. I didn’t really understand what a bumper was so Iooked it up here. My thought behind my bumper was to try and create something that was smooth but also kept the listener’s interest with the final whistle.  I played with…

Bump the Radio

I found this assignment quiet enjoyable, I completed my sound effects story first so I had a pretty good idea of how to use all of the tools need for this assignment. However, I must have redone my voice over at least 7 times. I worked on this bumper while…

A Bumper You Can Bump To

So, a few hours ago, I didn’t know how OR what I wanted to do for my DS106 Bumper. And since I didn’t know what a bumper was at first, you may not know either. A bumper is the short audio clip that plays on radio stations to remind you…

Audio Assignments for Week 4

The first audio assignment I did this week was creating a sound effect story: 
It is a bit of a horror story. I downloaded my sounds from freesounds.org and mp3skull.com and then imported them to Audacity where I layered them as well as put in some effects like fading in.…

DS106 raido bumperrrr

Here is my Radio bumper!! At first the audacity program was overwhelming but I started just trying stuff out and figured how things work. I used a sound clip from sound cloud called THIS LOVE by Julia Stone! I liked the beats in the song and it was mellow so…

Bumpin with DS106Radio!

This assignment for making a bumper for ds106 radio turned out to be really fun. I found a remix I liked from soundcloud, called Skrillex & Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem (Feature Cuts Remix) and downloaded into Audacity. After which I recorded my voice saying “Bump it up…

Bumper Time

I hope this is up to snuff, I enjoyed being able to break out the ol’ microphone, my buddy and I had delusions of grandeur and bought a set over the some to start podcasting, haven’t quite found the time yet but I’m glad it came of use. I used…

Flexin’ My Butt

Here it is, my radio bumper. That was way easier to do than I thought. Audacity works wonders. Also, I love me some MJ. So should you. He is a genius. That’s why I picked this song. Kind of a spur of the moment thing. This might be a bit…

Bump it Up (DS106 Radio)

My DS106 Radio bumper, this took me a while to even figure out what I was going to do. I listened to a lot of the ones which other ds106ers posted and got some ideas from that. I ended up just taking a song from iTunes  and recorded myself saying…

DS106 Radio Bumper!

A bumper is that segment on the radio that tells you what you are listening. Example: “You’re listening to Z101.5″. In this case, DS106 had a radio station (learn more)  I hope you enjoy my version of a bumper for SC106 radio.
This was created through audacity which is an…

Bumper buddies

One of the audio assignments we had this week was to create a bumper for ds106radio.  I chose to add some background noise because I thought it would add a nice effect to the bumper.  The bumper is short and was just meant to send a small message letting the…

DS106 Radio Bumper

I love the movie Bridesmaids, so naturally I wanted to pull from that for my radio bumper.  I saw my hypothetical station as a party station, so I used a line from the airplane scene. I am somewhat sure I did the radio bumper right, but I blended the sound…

That is a direct order. DO IT NOW!

I really enjoyed the ds106 radio bumper assignment! Who knew creating a radio bumper could be so fun! I loved listening to all the sound effects on freesound.org. I was constantly changing my bumper when I came across a sound I liked more. I am finally getting the hang of…

And THAT, ladies, gentlemen and test subjects, is how you bumper some gosh-darn radio, Aperture Labs style.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Portal franchise, I have a few words for you. First: WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?? No, seriously, you need to reevaluate your existence, and…

Audio Assignments: Radio Bumper

Creating a radio bumper for me was fun. To do this I used Audacity like I did with the 5 sound story.  First I recorded my voice saying “You’re listening to ds106 radio” in Audacity.  Then I went on Freesound and downloaded the sound called cut copy and paste that…

Bumpin’ ds106 style

Again, I had been dreading the whole audio thing and AGAIN it was pretty simple. This took a little longer than the 5 sound story, but it wasn’t that hard. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to incorporate “ds106″ into my bumper. I…

DS106 Radio Bumper

Okay, so I wasn’t really sure as to what we were supposed to be doing for this assignment so I just kind of looked at some of my other classmates work and kind of got inspiration that way.  Thanks to all of the other blogs for giving me the help…

ds106 Audio Assignments

I spent a good portion of one day working on ds106 assignments, just sitting at my computer, thinking, planning, searching, recording, rejecting, and trying again. Somehow, just sitting in that way was rough on my back and by dinner I could barely walk. (I’ve had lower back problems in the…

Audio Assignment 36: Create a bumper for DS 106 Radio.
I had such a good time participating in the DS106 class radio productions. I think the satisfaction of making something out of nothing but a thin thought wisping through your mind is amplified ten-fold when it melds with those…

DS106 Radio Bumper

I really struggled a lot with trying to set my mind on a single idea for a radio bumper. I had tons of different ideas and takes I wanted to approach this assignment with. I came across a relatively new track by Kanye West and Pusha T called “New God…

Open Letter to Chanda

Dear Chanda,
I totally ripped you off by co-opting a short clip from a well-known movie and turning it into my DS106 Radio bumper.  I’m sorry.  I was desperate.  Attempts at other audio assignments failed.  Miserably.
Sincerely,
Me
You can listen to my bumper here:

Glad You Came…to the DS106 Radio Show!

For this Audio Assignment I had to make a radio bumper for the DS106 radio station. To be honest I had no idea what a radio bumper was before this assignment, so that in itself was a learning experience! For inspiration I once again used my ipod. I figured it…

Radio Bumper

I thought this was a fun introductory assignment for sounds. I always here creative intros for DJ’s and radio shows and wondered how they did them so I thought this was interesting. I created mine by recording my voice using my computer mic and then getting two songs from youtube…

Radio Bumper

This is my first shot at the DS106 Radio Bumper. For some reason, when I was creating the bumper I couldn’t stop thinking about the Looney Toons. I found the opening theme on Frogstar.com and added the theme in as an opener. I then clipped several different songs to create…

BUMP the Bumper louder

This assignment had to be one of the best assignments ever. I listen to the radio a lot and sometimes I like the bumpers more than anything else. Most bumpers are very catchy, and they don’t have many words in them, which makes it easier to remember. Although, this was…

Funky DS106 Radio Bumper

For this assignment we had to make a radio bumper for DS106 very own radio. It had to be 15-30 secounds long but mine was a little over, you can actually stop it at 30 secounds if you like lol, It wouldn’t make a difference though:

 
 
Here are…

RadiobumperDS106 by annie_belle1 This is my first-ever shot at making a radio bumper. I got the inspiration from this assignment posted by Jim Groom. I did some research, but I’m not 100% sure I understand what a radio bumper is. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a sound…

DS106 Radio Gaga 2: Rebellion

My Lady Gaga themed bumper “DS106 Radio Will Set You Free” was probably my favorite thing I made last year, so for my first contribution to the audio unit this year I decided to make a followup.
This one uses songs from the album Born This Way, including:

“Heavy Metal…

Gleneagle Radio Bumpers

Though I’ve been something of a stranger in the DS106iverse this time around so far, I have been thinking about the brilliant evolution of the course design – which Jim tells me is (at least part of) the genius of Martha Burtis. Specifically, I think the Assignment Repository is a…

This is my Ds106 radio bumper, for this I used universal studio intro to add a grand feel. When people hear ( Universal Studio ) they think big and spectacular so I wanted to bring accross that idea with DS106 radio. I also added the…

SoundCloud, Audacity, and Android 106

I’m really excited about the audio unit, even if I’m getting to it a little late.  I think it might be because I really love audacity. It’s a wonderful program that allows even those with no experience in music to make some very interesting audio projects.  For my first assignment,…

Audio Assignment – DS106 Radio Bumper

DS106radioBumper by edrummon
Using audacity again, for the radio bumper I threw in some static around the different song clips and tried to put in “DS106 for life” in the end using different parts of songs for each word (jim groom for “DS106″). The beginning is kind of hard to…

DS106 Radio Bumper, Students

I made a #ds106 radio bumper, my first (already have an idea for the second)!

I kind of cheated, because most of the audio was recorded and mixed by a professional at a real studio back in 2001 (backstory and original audio clip here). Incidentally that was before I ever…

Babycakes, Babycakes, Babycakes

I made this bumper for DS106 radio around the time of our audio projects, but had forgotten about it until my friend who did the voice for it, Gigi, reminded me.
The background music is from freesoundproject.org.  I wrote the link down somewhere, but can’t find it. :/

DS106 Radio Gaga

I had the idea last night to create a Lady Gaga-themed DS106 Radio bumper for this audio assignment, and here’s the finished product.
I used clips of Lady Gaga speaking at the National Equality March in 2009, at the Monster Ball Tour in Toronto, as well as the “Pop Ate…

Force of Nature Radio Bumper

So, I made a radio bumper for ds106 radio out of an episode of star trek tng and a song and the google translator voice.

(Also, incidentally, I just added the wp audioplayer plugin to get that thing above this)
I think there is an easier way to grab audio…

Sound of Music

I did my radio bumper to one of my favorite songs by Bon Iver: Tower. His music, to me, is the perfect tunes to chill out with. Which led to this combination of layered recording. This was my first project in audacity. After a couple hours of tinkering I finally…
