Landscape Sounds

In todays session we were given information about how to edit the sounds on Audition and also how to use different affects.  We also were told that renaming files would be really helpful the reason for this is because not to get confused if we had a lot of sound clips.

Canary wharf was one of my first ideas the reason was because the area it self looks amazing and a lot of businesses is located in that area at night it looks beautiful you can see that through your own eyes in the image above.

London bridge was idea that came into my head because the area is great tourist attraction but the aim was to get sound not what you see visually so that area would be pointless for my project because thousnads of people use it to travel to different areas of London and I would get a traffic noise which is really boring.


Later on I then decided to go Westminster Where I came across the big Ben what really interest me about this area is that the big Ben is the biggest four faced clock in the world. The aim of this project was to record sound from different landscapes and it must tell a story to the audience so I have decided to do it as a journey where it begins when I leave my house.



Here is image of the different locations that I wanted to but Westminster was the landscape that interested me because London is a place where people visit for the attractions it has and big Ben is one them.


Here is a screenshot of the final version of the Landscape sounds I found it really difficult to remove unwanted sound one of my main problems was the wind I needed to record the chimes from the big ben but when you play the clip you can change the frequency of the wind level is getting high.


Sound Recording

For this project Howard and Trevor have filled us in a lot of key information about how to record clear sound and how to improve the quality of it. We decided to go Gallions Reach where we can get different types of sounds. The fact that it is a location where a lot people will go shopping we thought it might be busy but it really wasn’t because it at that people were at work. But we did go inside shops to see what we can hear in that environment.

As the weeks went by Howard has been giving us tips on how to use each equipment and how to get clear sound after this stage we had to decide about what places would be good to record sound. I wanted to go places where it would be busy and with a bit of history behind it. Howard also showed us how to use Audition at first I thought the programme would be hard to use but there were tutorials online that helped a  lot.
