Assignment: 10 Second Song Mashup
Assignment Description: This is some sort of variation on Katy Chase’s The Contest That Nobody Could Win assignment, but instead of clips from a TV show or movie, do clips from your favorite songs and see if anyone can guess what they are. Or atleast the artist. Do two or three second clips using 4 or 5 songs. Make them all different. Use soundcloud to post!
Top hits: This mashup is made up of 4 of my favorite songs right now, as well as 4 very well known songs. I don’t think that they are that hard to guess, but maybe you do! I included the chorus for all of them. Comment below, and I will be sure to comment back with all the right answers. (The soundcloud image makes it pretty obvious)
Madness behind the Mashup: I decided to use songs that I had downloaded into iTunes. Turns out, this didn’t work out as easily as I thought it would. I got pretty frustrated in this process. I finally googled some things, and found out that the iTunes file needs to be in mp3 format in order for me to import it into audacity. I went into iTunes preferences, and I was able to create an mp3 version of the songs. Once this was all done, I imported the 4 songs into audacity, and cut the songs to about 2-3 seconds each. I zoomed in a lot so that I could get the timing down perfectly. When it was all done, I uploaded to soundcloud, and embedded the file here.
