Assignment 3 – Willow Hong

For this project I narrated a horror story. Below are the steps I took:

  1. Wrote a short horror story and recorded it in CFA’s sound recording studio;
  2. Recorded the balloon poping sounds in Scott Hall elevator (IR1) and CFA Atrium (IR3);
  3. Downloaded garden ambient sound (IR2) and scary background sound (IR4) online;
  4. Edited the original voice and the IRs in Audacity and convoluted them in Max (IR1=bedroom, IR2=garden, IR3=basement, IR4=horror movie sound effect);
  5. Added the audio time shifting+feedback effect to render the scary atmosphere a bit more;
  6. Outputted the final audio file from Max using the “sfrecord~” component.
