For my sound effects story I decided to basically go through what it’s like to take my dog for a walk. It’s kind of a stretch, but I personally think it relates to our theme of “The Joy of Painting.” Because my joy in life are my animals. This sound really shows something that enjoy doing, and will always do. Though taking my dog for a walk isn’t super “creative” (maybe if we decided to go on some super extreme hike off the beaten path), taking her for walks is my equivalent to painting.
I used http://freesound.org to get my 6 different sound effects. I overlapped one that would be me walking, and then a sound of a dog walking on hardwood floor. The next sound I used was hooking up the leash/prong collar (which I thought was so cool that I found – who knew they’d have a sound for just about everything?). Next was the sound of me opening the front door. Followed by another sound of what would be me and my dog walking around the block. Lastly, I included a sound of someone (which would be me), wiping off their feet before going back into the house.
I had a hard time figuring out how to work Audacity, but YouTube has a video for just about everything so I figured it out pretty fast.
