The Sounds of Veronica’s Time

A day in the life (ds106 remix)

 

 

 

 

The Familiar Sounds assignment was a great choice for my first audio assignment this week. I have to say I was/still am very nervous about these audio challenges. After playing around with Audacity for a good hour and a half last night, I walked away equally …

Daily Sounds

Recording daily sounds was an assignment that made my roommates think I’m crazy. I walked around the house with my phone recording noises of my alarm, flushing the toilet, using the microwave, locking my door, and more. It’s interesting to listen to the sounds isolated. I never really think about …

Tlick-Tlock

A familiar sound in my room, pretty annoying to everyone else. It’s the ticking of my wall clock, a sound I never noticed until I had my boyfriend stay the night. It kept us both up at night once it was pointed out to me, it is an easy fix…
