All the Noises I deem Unnecessary!!!!

Auditory Hell

I chose this two star assignment from the audio assignment bank.  I instantly chose this assignment because off the top of my head I could think of a few really annoying sounds.

I first went https://freesound.org/ and searched for the most annoying sounds

1.  I could find the first sound I found was a woman yelling really loud, no one likes to hear yelling and I thought it would get the annoying point across.

  1. The second sound I used was nails on a chalk board, every time I listen to it, it makes the hairs on my neck raise.

  2. My grandparents had an old grandfather clock, that had a bird chirp at the top of every hour.  This is quite annoying if you are trying to take a nap or are trying to sleep through the night so I used the alarm clock bird chirping sound.

  3. Guess what the fourth sound is, a baby because the damn grandfather clock woke the baby up.

5.  I used a sound from an old computer game,  I feel like it is the sound that is made when you keep on losing your life, like you fell off the cliff because the cliff pixels were so crappy and you fell.  And now the computer game is making fun of you.

6.  Is another annoying computer background sound I figured tied in well with the others.

After finding all sounds I wanted to use I then went to Audacity Tutorials and used this to help me figure my way through the Audacity App.  Once I had all 6 sounds downloaded I was able to drag and drop the files into the App and was able to manipulate these files to intertwine with each other to make the product I have posted above.  I then uploaded the file into soundcloud and was able to take the file url and post it into my blog.

  1. That indeed was super annoying. Sounds like you already have the hang of audacity. The overlap between the grandfather clock going off and the baby crying was great.

    1. I would say I had a slight hang of audacity, I just touched on the very basics. As I know this app has much more to offer I look forward to diving into the other projects using this app.
