Music Mash Up

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:

  1. I used youtube-mp3.org to convert youtube videos of all of the songs into mp3s
  2. I imported all the tracks into audacity.
  3. 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.
