I was trying to accomplish the drama of a full story within one paragraph, as most of Aesop’s fables. A more difficult task than I thought it would be but I decided that since the tale was so short, I’d keep the sound as simple as possible just like the story was. I had to sort out the files that were comparable with my tools as well as good quality with as little background noise as possible unless it added to the scene itself. I felt that the focus of this short piece was to paint a picture in the listener’s mind, to do that I had to find very familiar sounds. Sound quality from third parties and levels of the different sounds also are important, it guides the listener’s focus throughout the story.
