10 Second Sound Mashup- 4 Stars
The prompt for this assignment is:
This is some sort of variation on Katy Chase’s The Contest That Nobody Could Win assignment, but instead of clips from a TV show or movie, do clips from your favorite songs and see if anyone can guess what they are. Or at least the artist. Do two or three second clips using 4 or 5 songs. Make them all different. Use soundcloud to post!
The Work Itself
—Spoiler Alert Coming—
The Story Behind the Story
If you have been reading my other blogs, you probably know at this point that my favorite artist is Tom Petty so of course I had to do a mashup of four of my favorite songs from my favorite album by him, Full Moon Fever. I always find his music relaxing and chill, it just puts me in a happy place. This songs especially achieve this with their cool melodies and funny lyrics, I find him to be a musical genius!
Narrating the Process
Since I already had the album, Full Moon Fever, downloaded on my computer, I was able to import the four songs I wanted to use quite easily into Audacity. I used “Free Fallin’,” “Yer So Bad,” “Won’t Back Down,” and “Feel a Whole Lot Better” (and no I did not put them in the correct order, you need to guess it!). Once each song was imported into Audacity, I cropped each one to a clip of about 2-3 seconds each.
Then I “Cut” and “Paste” each clip until they were all combined.
And that completes my mashup of Tom Petty!
