For the 10 Second Song Mash Up assignment, we had to take a couple of seconds from 4 or 5 songs and mash them together in a 10 second audio clip. Here’s what I came up with:
I didn’t want to just pick five random songs, I wanted to express my various music tastes in this. I like a lot of different music, so I picked five songs that I feel capture the spectrum my interest. They’re not in any particular order, but I feel the first part could only be placed at the beginning. I tried to take out key moments in each song, so the listener can get a feel for what the whole song is like.
Fun Fact: It’s the same vocalist on the first and fourth songs.
How I made it:
- I used youtube-mp3.org to convert youtube videos of all of the songs into mp3s
- I imported all the tracks into audacity.
- I edited the tracks to just 2-3 seconds of audio and adjusted the tracks into an order, as seen below:
4. I exported the audio and uploaded it to Soundcloud.
