My Sound Collage
« on: May 11, 2015, 03:05:55 PM »
I'm currently taking a course on music technology in college. For one assignment, I had to create a sound collage incorporating sounds from around my college's campus to describe how I relate to the college. The chimes in the beginning are a giant set of wind chimes in the center of the campus. In the middle, the windy/metal clanging sounds come from the windmill that powers the campus. These represent sounds that I frequently hear on campus as well as ways that I find peace. In the middle of the piece, alongside the windmill sounds, you can hear me playing a certain tune on the piano (please don'tsuemeReives). I know I didn't play it perfectly; I got a few notes wrong.

Wanna check it out, and now my browser doesn't trust your https certificate. Hm. Might look into it some more.

Some of the background sounds need to 'segue' (dunno if that's the right word) into each other smoother.  You might try crossfading or fading in/out than stopping/playing abruptly.  Other than that, the rest I like :)
