Many artists sing songs about similar things or that each tell similar stories. Find an artist like this and choose five of their songs that you can make into one story. Using Audacity or another audio edting software, edit five or more songs by one artist into a new story! Use at least 5 songs and make the new song at least 5 minutes long. I recommend not uploading it to SoundCloud as it will likely be taken down due to copyright infringement, but you can still put it up on your blog and Twitter. Have fun with it!

For this assignment I took five of my favorite Blake Shelton Songs and mixed them together to become one song. Once I figured out and got the hang of how Audacity worked it was wasn’t that hard. The hard part came when it was matching up …

Greatest Hits Storytelling

This assignment was the most time consuming one so far, but I am impressed on how it turned out! I used Florida Georgia Line as the artist to tell the story. Since, I already had their songs on iTunes, I just used Audacity to record it.

Greatest Hits Storytelling

I went into this assignment thinking it would be super easy. I was so wrong.  This is an easy concept but it was hard to pull off and make it sound like I wanted. My original theme of just a love song kinda turned as I started working on this …
