For my final assignment of the week, I tried something a bit new.  Seeing as this is a "digital storytelling" class, I decided to write a little story with the caveat being it had to contain a plethora of homophones. The assignment was only worth one star, but I'd already completed nine, so this would round me off for the week. My process consisted of opening...

For my third assignment of the week, I kept my acoustic guitar out after using it in my commercial. I wanted to mess around with it, since I recently discovered I was lacking a cable to my old amp. So, I found the theme assignment, and decided to write Donnie Rawlen a little motif. I spent an evening making this, strapped to my headphones, computer,...

For my second assignment of the week, I became a hipster. Seriously. I made a commercial about buying a new fedora. There's probably more hipster-y things than this happening all the time, but, of course, I've never even heard of them. I stared off the assignment with no idea what I would base my commercial on, but my group needed another commercial for our radio show,...

Alright, I crashed and burned on my multiple attempts to do the 800% Slow Down assignment, so I looked quickly for a new assignment, and found the Favorite Song assignment, which was meant as more of a "remove the lyrics" assignment.

First off, I had a terrible time coming up with ideas for this Sound Effects Story assignment. I didn't know how I wanted Donnie's character to develop quite yet, so I didn't want to make much official. I started off thinking that I would just try to put the audio track down from my short story, "Six Slingers and a Singer", but decided that wouldn't fit in...

I'd like to start off by saying that this assignment really brought me completely out of my comfort zone. I'm more of an instrumental musician, so singing, let alone posting a song cover that's open for anyone to hear, anytime, made me very hesitant to complete it. But I also thought that DS106 has brought me out of my comfort zone already; I'm no photographer,...

At first, I thought this would be a daunting task. I was sort of lost when I first opened Audacity. It looked really clunky, to begin with, and had a few symbols I'd never seen before, like the Envelope Tool and Multi-Tool. I'd used Ableton Live and, to a lesser degree, Garageband for a little bit of very basic audio editing, but the hard drive...
