The point of this assignment was to create a place using only sound effects. For this process, I went to FreeSounds which is a free-use platform with thousands of user generated sounds. My goal was to make the listener feel as if they were sitting on a bench by a busy street. I searched for different types of sounds to emulate the feeling of being outside. I found sound bytes that sounded like cars passing, birds chirping, and even a bike bell.
To create the scene, I uploaded the sounds into Audacity. In order for the sounds to seem more organic, I cut them up and scattered them throughout.
When I was happy with the finished product, I uploaded it to SoundCloud.
The end result turned out to be the sounds of a busy street. I am very pleased with how it turned out.
