One of this weeks assignments is creating a radio bumper for ds106, but I already did one in spring '13.
This way I rather have chosen something similar to this from the assignment bank, which is to produce your very own Rap.
I had to go to Soundation to come up with a beat. Here you can find various building blocks for creating a suitable beat. I did this very intuitively by choosing a block by name, listening to it and deciding if I may use it or not.
I do not know much about Rap, but I know there is a beat and words, which are spoken appropriate to the beat. So I tried and felt awkwardly first, but then found my way with some words. Hear yourself!
The recording of my words I managed with Audacity. While listening to the beat via my head phones I have spoken the words into the microphone. After this I listened to the combination and giving it some tries I finally was content.
I would have liked to give my voice more volume, but did not manage in my small room and sitting in front of a computer, the atmosphere was not like being able to feel free enough for a more impressive voice. Still, I like my DS106 Rap.
