Taylor Neal- Project 1 First Draft

The sounds I used in this project include an out of tune acoustic guitar, an old AC unit outside, students speaking in the black box theater, shoes in a stairwell, water, a cup, and the sound of my pillow being punched.

I used methods such as looping, time fluctuation, and effects like reverb, ring modulation, EQ and compression.

The reading informed me about tape loops, and how tape was reversed and slowed down to create an entirely different sound than the original source.

  1. I really liked the haunting feel that was being created with everyday items. While the sounds were random the entire piece was able to come together to tell a story

  2. Nice piece! I really enjoyed the voices talking and the eerie feeling came with that. Perhaps to improve the piece you could make the ending sound more finite. Maybe add a big sound at the end. Similar to a final cadence.
