For the background of my Audio Story about the path I plan on traveling in life is a track from soundcloud:
My reasoning behind choosing a story to tell about my life is important because if my overall project is “About Me,” then learning my background and intentional future is imperative. Delving into the past of my family that has not necessarily brought me memories of positivity and happiness. Granted, it was not all bad. The good times that I have had with my family give me hope for happiness in my future family. Which is my overall direction in life. Obviously entailing a lucrative career that I enjoy going to work every day. While making my audio story there were major parts that I had to cut out due to stuttering or fumbling over my words. There are still instances in my story where I do stutter, but that’s just what I do sometimes. I chose the background music because it involved a slow steady rhythm that complimented my voice well. Plus, the bell at the end of the story at 2:09 is possibly my favorite touch to the story. I chose to fade out the last three seconds of the background music after my voice cuts out. Lowering the decibel level of the soundcloud track was also a decent edition as well. This project helped me become more aware of the large potential of Audition. Mixing together the sounds and the ability to erase mistakes simply by cutting out a section and then grouping together the two tracks allows the chance of creating perfection in sound. I was already happy the initial daft and for the final the only edits were uncomfortable pauses, filler words, and stutters. Simply just cutting out the section that i didn’t want anymore and grouping together all of the clips in the end. I feel that the class of com 210 is the starting line for the long journey ahead of myself towards becoming an advertising director; inevitably fulfilling My Story.
