I made this demo for my students to show them Audacity and basic editing for the Sound Effects Story assignment:
Tell a story using nothing but sound effects. There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects. Use at least five different sounds that you find online. The story can be no longer than 90 seconds.
Mine is a tale of a quiet walk in the woods, say up in the in the forests of Show Low Arizona.
All of my sounds are from freesound (http://freesound.org/):
Dry Leaves Walking
Memory Moon Wet Spaceship Loop
Gulls by the Sea
These are all in tracks in Audacity. For the footsteps, I copies a segment, and sped up the speed twice, to make for a sound of hurried walking, then running. I also made a copy of the phaser sound and reversed it to make a loop. A few fade-ins, fade-outs, and bam, done.
