WUTB-Variation 4A - Night Fears

From: David Green
Series: We Used To Believe...
Length: 01:01

Embed_button
When you were younger, did you ever believe something which turned out not to be true? How about recently? Producers Allison and Nina explore scary monsters, sisters and stuffed animals. Read the full description.

4awutb_small Working with a partner or on their own, the students of Third Grade Audio created “mini-audio collages” inspired by the topic, “We used to Believe…”  As they did their sound editing, students took into consideration: clip order, overlapping voices, background music, the use of silence, additional recorded narration or introductions and vocal effects while designing their mini-collages. While some groups started with the same set of audio clips, they produced mini-collages that were quite different from one another in terms of sound, mood, and narrative emphasis. The series could be viewed as “Variations on an Audio Theme.”

These mini-collages represent the most independent production work done by the students of Third Grade Audio posted on prx  thus far. They should be considered the primary producers of the pieces, with only minimal additional production (tweaking here and there, adjusting levels) done by David Green.
