I enjoyed this assignment and think I did well on it, being able to using pixlr because it is very user friendly. I got the inspiration from 2 things that I like and downloaded their images to insert into pixlr in different layers than played around with the placement and coloring of both images so they would match. I enjoyed playing around with the different colors and effects I could add to my logo.
This was by far my favorite assignment yet, no matter how long it takes to complete and use audacity I am really enjoying playing around with song editing. This assignment was to make my own song using other lyrics and I kept a country rock theme mixed with the 80’s for 4.5 stars. I was able to use a bunch of songs I knew and mashed them together to create a new song with an 80’s to today twist which was fun. I kept a love theme going in my songs overall and the love of people through out their life. I first uploaded it to soundcloud and a segment was taken down so I went back in and edited the segment to sound different and sped it up a little while changing the pitch far but still able to understand the original. The second time I uploaded it, it went up without a problem which was a relief. I downloaded all the songs from youtube then listened to them editing the segments I wanted while thinking where each song would fit the best in the new song I was creating.
The songs I used are listed in the order they appear in the song:
Song of the South by Alabama (1989)
The Ones that Like Me by Brantley Gilbert (2017)
You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi (1986)
Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis (1987)
Check Yes or No by George Straight (1995)
I Got a Car by George Straight (2013)
Tried to Tell You by Brantley Gilbert (2017)
Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Jovi (1986)
Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen (1984)
I tried to incorporate the theme into the music release years and mix them with newer music that I still like. I think I did a really good job on this and it turned out exactly how I wanted it to. The only thing I would change is the amount of time I could devote to it because I used about 3 hours but if I had more time it could sound even better than it does.
For this assignment I had a blast! I love playing around with animojis and enjoy getting to have them mimic my facial expressions. This assignment was to use animoji to karaoke sing to a sing and upload it for 5 stars. I decided I was going to lip-sing to “What Happens in a Small Town” by Brantley Gilbert because I really like the song and the story it portrays is so true to anyone from a small town. This song is really about all the memories that are created in a small town and how the people may leave and go away but the memories stay and the sparks stay when everyone comes back to town. Like most small towns the really booming part was in the 80’s when it was still small mom and pop shops and good ole boys hunting for dinner. As well as that, Brantley Gilbert grew up in that time making fun with riding and target practice with his friends. The character also resembles me because I am weird like a monkey and will make funny faces when I can showing off my quirky attitude. The monkey is just a cute way to do that while still having fun with this assignment.
I had a lot of fun creating this karaoke assignment with my phone to post because it is a change of pace while still using elements from this class and exploring my creativity more and more. I think I did a good job on this assignment and made 2 videos because I couldn’t figure out where I wanted to take to video so I just did 2 to cover my bases. If I had the chance to do it again I would figure out a way to directly save if from my phone instead of emailing it to myself downloading it, then uploading it to youtube.
