So for this assignment, we had to create a story using ONLY sound effects. At first, I was a little worried about it, but once I started thinking about it, I had a pretty good time. My original idea was kind of a horror but I adapted it to fit into my character Marlene’s story. I used freesound to find all the effects I needed and Audacity to put everything together. I was pretty stoked when I realized how user-friendly Audacity is. I gathered about 8 sounds in total but only ended up using 6 and a small 7th. I had to play around with discovering how to get the tracks to play at different times but once I figured that out, it was pretty simple. I hope you guys enjoy! The story behind the sounds is below the recording!
As you listen to the story you’ll hear horses galloping and coming to a stop. Then the door to Marlene’s tavern opening and some background bar/tavern sounds. The footsteps continue and a guitar begins to play some music. Suddenly, you hear a woman scream and then a gunshot followed by footsteps. Can you guess what has happened in Marlene’s tavern?
