Music From Another Room

The prompt

(This is a folk song written in the 1800s that was recorded in 1922 and is now public domain. However, since it is a song that already exists, Soundcloud may flag it anyway. If it gets taken down, leave a comment and I’ll try to embed the file …

The Whispering Sea But You’re In Another Room…

… and It’s Raining Outside and Your Siblings Are Playing In It and Your Parents Are Making Dinner and You’re Playing Video Games. That’s the title. (Cover art by Matt Rockefeller!) Inspiration taken from the following (anyone else have a Minecraft phase?):

Played From Another Room

Is this song REALLY played from another room?

Nope! I edited this song to make it sound like it was being played from another room! I cranked down the bass and treble to make it sound muffled.

Push it……

Push It- but you are hiding in the bathroom at a club your friends convinced you to come to for “80’s night” so you are texting your boyfriend to come pick you up because you would rather be at home with a cup of tea cuddling your cat.

“Sanctuary” from Kingdom Hearts 2 but it’s coming from another room

This assignment challenged me to edit a song to make it sound muffled as it was coming from a different room! This is worth three stars.

I have never used audio editing software before so it was definitely a learning experience. I downloaded Audacity, a free audio mixing application. I …

Played from Another Room

For my first audio assignment, for 3 stars, I did one that I’ve always been drawn to on social media; the “playing in the other room audio”. I’ve always found it soothing and cool to listen to. Following along with our 80’s theme, I chose my favorite song from Pretty …

The music is too loud

I honestly felt that this would be really simple, but as I looked through Audacity, I was in the biggest stump ever. I don’t know how to edit audio at all. Before attempting this, I thought to myself, “You can do this, it shouldn’t be so hard.” I was so …

King in a Different Room

I chose the song King, by Years & Years. I love their music and am a fan of their sound so I made this song’s base very prominent while trying to make it sound like it is playing from another room.

“You just got off of your night shift in the scrapyard. It’s been a long day, you’re ready to go home. You get in your car but before you can drive away, song starts, the morning shift has arrived. You sit in your car, wondering why you always have the …

Frozen: Metal Through the Walls

You realize that the chick from frozen would’ve sounded better if she’d only been able to shred on a B.C. Rich Warlock Guitar. So you gather your friends together in an orgy of electric metal death and redo the song, only to find out that… well… frozen sucks.
