Marlene’s Bad Day

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?

  1. I love this! It’s so good! I’m definitely impressed…. The scream actually scared the crap out of me ahahaha! My guess is someone (not Marlene) got shot. and Marlene is the one that screamed!!!!
