I Can’t Feel My Legs…

I think that the creators chose audio as the medium because it gives the audience a greater sense of context to what is going on in the message. The way someone projects their voice through the audio messages tells you whats going on. The crowd-sourced audio does a great job …

S.O.S.: Save Our Sounds

Frequency 2156 is an awesome sight that collects different audio posts from all over the world and compiles them into one gigantic audio narrative. The idea is that the apocalypse has come and people worldwide are attempting to reach out and communicate with someone, anyone. Some of the posts I …

Frequency 2156, Can You Hear Me?

Why do you think the creators chose audio as the medium?

I believe it sets the tone of an apocalyptic world, because they would not have TVs nor internet. Radio signals can move across the world and is very reliable for communication.

How well does the crowd-sourced audio work …

Broadcast from Forreston Grade School, Illinois

Forreston Grade School Broadcast: https://frequency2156.com/signal/531

Creating my broadcast from Forreston, Illinois, was actually quite the adventure. After getting everything downloaded and ready to go, I had to think about how I wanted my broadcast to be. I don’t know what kind of apocalypse I’m in (it seems rather war-like from …

Frequency 2156, Can You Hear Me Now?

First off… this is reallyyy reallyyy cool! Love this site.  I think the creators chose audio as the medium because I think it allows the listener to create their own images of who is behind the voice and fully immerse themselves in the stories. I think adding video would distort …

Is Anyone Out There?

Frequency 2156 was very interesting, I must say. Even though it was just a website that is very clearly fake, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit of impending doom actually waiting around the corner for me. I’ve never seen a digital project quite like this, and love how …

What the Freak Frequency Radio

I thought Frequency 2156 was very interesting. I listened to alot of deep radio stations and lite hearted ones. One i listened to sounded pretty similar to the tweet along audio we listened to earlier in the week. But i did think ones were pretty creepy, one of our classmates …

Frequency 2156…Can You Hear Me?

The Frequency 2156 website is pretty cool overall. It tells a story through different areas of the world where people put in audio after what seems like the apocalypse. I think they did a good job because when you listen to different audios you get an image in your head …

Fictional Nuclear Emergency Broadcast

My Frequency 2156 Submission

I decided to emulate a military emergency broadcast for our Frequency 2156 world’s radioactive state:

 

Behind the Scenes

From there, I modulated my voice to sound radio-like …

Don’t Follow Strange Noises

Exploring Frequnecy 2156  was a unique and fun experience. I really enjoyed its collaborative strategy to creating a digital story.

Romeo Uniform November

I added my message to the radio on Frequency 2156 (after some interference prevented me from doing so for a long while):

The website could have enthralled me for HOURS (and it did for at least one). It is so interesting how everything is tied together under one “radio” and …

Hello?… Anyone There?

This week, I got to experiment with a bunch of sounds and audio! I just finished up posting an audio clip of me to Frequency 2156. If you’ve never heard of this site, it’s a website which is almost its own radio show. When you first go to the …

Radio Dispatch

I spent a good amount of time exploring Frequency 2156. My opinion on the site is that it’s freaking amazing. I was instantly intrigued by all the radio dispatches and spent time listening to some. The entire site as a whole is a digital story made up of smaller …

The Frequencies of Friends

I found Frequency 2156 interesting and very difficult. Audio is a nice choice since in the case of the apocalypse, I don’t think many of us would have the time or ability to watch TV. We’ll either be hiding or running.

The use of audio also allows the listeners to …

Pick Up I’m Calling
