My new old friend

This post is just a recap of my first ever listen to ds106 radio and my thoughts on it and audio in general. This is the second half of my post for my audio reflection tag, my first was moon graffiti. Without the visual of the movie being played in front of me, sound was extremely important to lead me to what the mood was. Also showing me who was friends with who and what scene could have been going on at that time. I really had to pay close attention to understand what was going on and who was talking since I didn’t have a visual. Also the lack of music and use of sound effects really had an impact as to what was going on. The tweet a-long did help me understand who was doing what as well since I feel like a few of us were a little confused. In all honesty I really did enjoy listening in on the show, they even used my radio bumper! I can see why radio shows were so popular, they really require you to use your imagination and transport you to another world. I’m definitely going to be tuning in more even if it isn’t required!

To infinity and beyond… or not…

I decided to split up my audio reflection. This post is about Moon Graffiti. I really enjoyed this radio episode. I love how the sound effects really gave me a sense of what was happening, whether it be the crash in the very beginning or sounds of them being on the moon. The music also helped move the story along as to whether it was a high action part or whether it was a very emotional party. The music would be soft and slow which I thought was a nice touch to evoke the emotional aspect. The music also brought the intro and conclusion which made the show seem professional. The effect of the voices, whether it be on the radio or the astronauts also helped the listener distinguish who was talking. It’s crazy to think that this could have actually happened and that a speech like that may have actually been used.
