For my audio project I chose Aesop’s fable, The Monkey and the Fox. This is my first time working with audio and I had a great time exploring this wonderful world of sound manipulation. I wanted to have fun so I created my own background picture and added some techno to the track.
It took me a while before I could figure out how to successfully combine the tracks and edit the sound effects. I have to admit I was nearly in tears before things started coming together. Trying to record audio with an active toddler and noisy dog was a challenge. I must have recorded at least fifty times before I ended up with the final result.
Overall I am happy with the way it turned out. It is by all means not perfect. I didn’t even touch on a fraction of the editing options audacity offers and I look forward to exploring in the future.
What I take away from this project is that I am not passionate enough about audio to pursue a career in it, but I did have a lot of fun and I will be using my new found skills in future projects.
