I am excited to choose the Digital Audio project for the creativity module. I commute both to the university and to my work, and subsequently end up spending a lot of my week listening to podcasts and music. I thought that the Digital Audio project would be an excellent opportunity for me to learn how these recordings are produced. I’m excited to explore the materials, particularly the podcast about the history of audio production.
For my project, I want to listen to a podcast while thinking critically about all the sounds intentionally used and occurring in the episode. I also want to create my own edited interview of someone using StoryCorps inspired questions. I hope to learn a lot about producing digital audio, and I imagine it will make me appreciate my favorite podcasts all that much more!
