For my next audio assignment from the audio assignment bank, I chose to do “Create A Place” which is 4 stars. I was initially thinking about ‘creating’ a place like New York City, but then I thought to myself, who wants to sit and essentially listen to car horns, lol. So I decided to think about what’s a place the elicits a feeling of relaxation (for most people at least), and I immediately thought of the beach.
I used https://freesound.org for my sounds and I used GarageBand to create it. Below I will share a few brief instructions on how to create your own place! Scroll to the bottom of the page to listen to the finished product!
Step 1, once you open GarageBand, select ‘audio’, ‘recording’, then hit ‘create’.
Step 2, once you’ve made it to this page you can begin dragging and dropping your audio files.
Step 3, once you’ve added your audio files, this is where you can change the length (and order if you have multiple) to fit your needs.
In this final step, this is where you can share you music file. GarageBand gives you a few options for sharing (I shared mine directly to SoundCloud).
And now you have your own ‘place’ to listen to!
