For this assignment, I decided to tell the story of my birth. The story of my poor mother trying to push my fat yet tiny body out of her is a family favorite and a definite conversation starter.
I didn’t just want to tell the story to a mic, so I decided to present it as a sort of “Breaking News” story. I wanted it to sound like you were listening to the News in the morning as a background noise then heard this story and started paying attention.
I had a lot of fun with this project and messing around with Audacity. At times it was frustrating as I didn’t quickly understand all of the functions, but after reading the manual I was fine. I used sound effects from freesounds.org and soundbible.com.
Here is a picture of me at one month. Just look at those cheeks and full fro that I’m rockin’.
