this was a fun little project. I dont remember hearing fables when I was a kid, but I;m sure I did. when I first read the fable I knew I wanted some kind of fiddle in the background. I pictured the fox and stork out in a field on a warm day hanging out. I chose the fiddle because it implies an old west feeling and I think it puts the listener outside with our little friends.
the hardest part was listening to my voice while I worked on it. I actually pitched the dialogue down so I didnt have to hear myself. there are moments in this fable that I was able to punctuate with sound rather easily. it seemed like every few seconds there was something that needed a sound. the plates anbd jars, the frustration of the animals, and a number of spots that allowed for some humor to come through.
There are 24 sounds in the story and I had a blast finding a spot for each one. my past audio experience made the process really fun. I didnt have to learn how to use anything to make it. this allowed me to spend all my time being creative. in the future, I need to take more time recording my own voice. I hate hearing myself so I did the recording in one take. there are a few rough spots for sure.
