Well done on finding the blog. I’ll keep this updated fairly regularly (at least once a week) with details on the work we’re doing in class, and also homework and deadlines. I can also use this to share resources (like handouts) so you can find them when you need them. 🙂
Anyway, to kick us off, and to help you with your ‘sound stories’, here are some links that may help you find sounds or software to help you…
AUDACITY: (LINK) Free sound editing software. Don’t be fooled by the look of it. This is a very clever bit of software that allows you to create awesome sound files and landscapes… and best of all, it’s free and runs on just about every platform (Mac/PC/Linux)
Sound Bible is great for one thing: Sound effects. Lots and lots of lovely sound effects which are free to use (and see my earlier post on the use of foley sound to appreciate how important these are).
(Click for a great intro!)
Honestly! There are loads of great found effects to be found on the Tube of Youness… and also some great videos on how to create your own (Hint: Search for the word FOLEY or SFX)
Now go, create, record, and think!
