For this assignment you will use one or more provided samples that contain spoken text, and combine them with other sounds of your choice to create an original collage. Here are the requirements:
- You must incorporate one or more of the spoken texts in the folder Sound Collage 3-B (in Files), either whole or in part
- You must also use other sounds of your choice, to complement the text
- The collage must reflect thoughtful editing
- Total duration must be between 40 seconds and 2 minutes.
Start by downloading and reviewing the samples in the folder Sound Collage 2″ (which also includes translations of the recordings that are not in English). Pick one or more to use for this assignment. The files include spoken texts by artist Agnes Martin, philosopher and activist Angela Davis; an excerpt from a radio play (“War of the Worlds”) by Orson Welles; and poems by Samuel Beckett (in English), Pablo Neruda (in Spanish), Zhou Zan (in Chinese) and Hafez (in Farsi).
Use one or more of the audio files provided, either whole or in fragments, and combine it with other sounds of your choice to create a collage. To complement the text, you may use any sounds you wish, i.e. loops or virtual instruments within Soundtrap, sounds you record yourself, or sound samples you find online. But as with last week’s assignment, it is important that your collage reflect original editing, so you should not simply layer long samples to fill up the space, or import long, complex samples that were composed by other people. We want to see your own, original choices.
Note that in the same folder, there is also a PDF with suggested “recipes” for creating the collage. Try one of these out if you aren’t sure where to start!
As with all the collages from now on, you must also submit a text document in which you summarize the work you did and the main editing steps used. You should also indicate there whether you are willing to have your work shared by the instructor and, if you are, whether or not it should be anonymous.
To earn a grade of Complete, the Sound Collage must meet these criteria:
- It uses text from one or more of the provided samples
- It reflects thoughtful editing choices with shorter samples and represents your own original work, rather than simply layering longer, imported sounds or loops created by other people.
- Its duration is between 40 seconds and 2 minutes.
- It is accompanied by a written document that summarizes the editing steps you used, and any other information that helps us understand the work you put into it.
- Both text and audio are submitted by the deadline in the proper format.
