When thinking of how/what I wanted to do in order to begin this audio editing assignment, I thought it would be as tedious and difficult as the image editing. I’ve only ever used online splicing websites to cut audio and (kind of not legally) download songs and save them to iTunes, but I’ve never even opened up the Garage Band application that’s taking up space on my computer. After figuring out the functions and learning how to navigate around the site, I found it incredibly and thankfully very easy to edit my audio. That’s not to say this project wasn’t time consuming in its own right, however. It took me forever to find which tracks I wanted to combine and thought would work well together, and then recording my own audio was another mess. Between cringing at my own voice and my roommates making even the slightest sound in the background, my final product is less than perfect. With all that being said, I definitely found this project much more fun and can actually see myself using it for different projects in the future since I feel I have a good grasp on it now.
The songs I ended up using were “Sing, Sing, Sing” by Benny Goodman and “Booty Swing” by Perov Stelar. You can listen to my commercial by clicking here.
