This week focused on audio, and although with the daily creates of DS106 it was not “Strictly” just audio we messed with it was mostly audio focused, which was a great time.
We listen to podcasts, and radio, we manipulated sounds, and made sounds of our own. I learned a good amount about sound editing, structuring and manipulation. Sound, in terms of composition like music and music theory, do not come natural to me, even though I have personally spent probably over 1000+ hours messing with music, composing, mastering, remixing, I still have a very hard time with it. I feel this stems from the fact that I cannot “doodle” with music the way I can doodle with a pen or pencil. There are millions of pens and things to write on in an everyday setting but often I without the tools I need to create something audio/music related on the fly. Maybe in the future this will change. Overall the week was an interesting and engaging week experimenting with sound and I look forward to the weeks that follow.
