guess what’s happening
Tell a story using nothing but sound effects. There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects. Use at least five different sounds that you find online. The story can be no longer than 90 seconds.
This audio is inspired by what it’s like to be doing late night homework. Many students experience this, so I thought it would be a familiar story. I used the app Audacity and the website freesound to make my wordless story.
I started with the owls to paint the picture that it was nighttime. The sound reappears multiple times throughout to keep the nighttime setting consistent. Then, I took the sound of a desk chair rolling back to sit down then roll in towards a desk. Next, I used the very familiar sound of typing on a laptop because that is the key component of working at a desk. I figured it would be a good touch to add the sounds of opening a snack; this could be any snack you choose since it is not specific on which because its a wordless story. To finish my audio, I had the desk chair roll again and then a door shut to imply the work was done and it was time for bed.

I really feel like I can relate to this, especially since I have stayed up late and did homework. I believe I definitely have made some of these same sounds in the process as well. I liked you creativity and how technical you got with the sounds.
It sort of sounds like you came home and started typing away on a typewriter, even though I know that’s not true!
The only thing I don’t like about it is that mid way through the audio switched from being balanced to solely on the left. There’s nothing wrong with that! It just freaked me out since I was listening on headphones.
