Radio Show Idea: 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident

In 1983, Soviet nuclear bunkers had a computer error which falsely reported that US nuclear missiles were inbound, and Soviet authorities almost launched nukes at the USA. We could do a 30 minute story dramatizing the tension in that room, with a climactic story and believable characters. Audio alarms could be going off in the background, with yelling officials and dramatic music, to create a hectic sense of confusion and drama, as one wrong move could start WWIII.

DS Assignment bank: Create A Place

Under Water noises, could be used in a cheesy 1980’s music video intro.

Creation Process: Using Audacity, I desired to create an abnormal world, which can describe 1980’s popular culture, although I’m not a fan of the popular culture. I generated white noise, subdivided it, added a few effects, and used the PaulStretch function. I was tired from this week, but for me it sounds pretty foreign and alien, almost like strange beasts miles under the water. I can see part of it being used for a cheesy 1980’s music video intro, to create a sense of unease before the musicians play their music.

I chose the assignment because, out of the options available, it was one that allowed me to create something highly unusual.

DS106 Assignment Bank Assignment: Auditory Hell

Google Chrome converted into a sound file sounds glorious; it makes a great alarm

I got the .exe file from an old version of the Google Chrome internet Browser, and read the raw data as an audio file in Audacity. The assignment asked for a horrible sound, and the worst sounds are when the computer tries to read as a sound file something that isn’t designed to be read as a sound file; it usually results in painfully loud white noise, random and chaotic screeching, or both. After importing Google Chrome’s .exe file, I found an excellent segment which combined the worst aspects of importing non-sound files, and saved that as a separate sound file. I choose the assignment because I use something similar to wake me up. Any sound which can cause a 20-year old college student with no coffee, 1 hour of sleep in the past 24 hours, and a tendency to sleep through alarms to immediately wake up and stay awake is a horrid sound in my books. Feel free to use this as an alarm, as it will work 100% of the time, I can guarantee.

Audio Reflection Assignment

Sound adds atmosphere, and intensifies the mood. Sound impacts mood and creates atmosphere by adding another element to fixate on in the scene, further drawing in the viewer’s attention. Abumrad’s ideas about using sound are interesting, with his videos having sound being used to express emotion, such as the Astronaut communication being used to express emptiness.

Weekly Summery #5

This week was long and tiring, I only ate on average 1 meal per day, and usually had between 2-5 hours of sleep per day. Programming was fun as always, but the rest of the week was exhausting, with me working until late in the morning on a few days, especially on Thursday-Friday where I had worked until 9:00 am on Friday morning. I ran out of tissues during the week, and with my nose in full allergy mode, it was annoying. With time being constrained, especially with my night class, I unfortunately missed the Tweet-A-Long assignment, but I hope next week will be better. Coordinating with my group members in my programming class has worked out good, and we expect a finished program by Sunday. I had honestly forgotten Valentines day was on Friday, and wouldn’t have known had it not been for Google’s unusual doodle. My Grandfather has had a hard time dealing with this week, this is the first Valentines day that he’s had since his wife died, and Sunday will be the first anniversary of her birthday since her death. In politics club, I had a good time for our week’s topic of religion, and I’m exited that my club will watch the presidential primary debate to scrutinize the remaining candidates. The last one we watched, we had a tally sheet to record points based off of what a candidate said, with a negative for each time they said something we strongly disagree with, and a positive for tolerate; Elizabeth Warren got a -65 for my sheet, lol. The sound in hell assignment was fun, so I could upload a horrid, loud, screeching noise certain to cause one’s eardrums to explode, I use something similar for my cell-phone alarm, which can wake and keep me up after only having one hour of sleep in the past 24 hours and no coffee. Last week I forgot about the write up, but I’ve made sure to do it this week in each Assignment Bank assignment, as stated in the Write-Up guide.

DS 106 Bumper

The Bumper for pausing in-between radio music.

My goal was to keep the message strict and formal, while having some fun in sarcasm stating that listening was not required, but boosted ratings. Hopefully it would be straightforward enough to the point of keeping the listener’s attention until the next song played.

DS106 Assignment Bank: Sound Effects Story

In 1983, Soviet nuclear bunkers had a computer error which falsely reported that US nuclear missiles were inbound, and Soviet authorities almost launched nukes at the USA. This story is about the first 30 seconds in the USA if Nuclear war had been accidentally started in 1983.

I created the story through 3 separate audio files, and put them together at increasing intervals until the loud sounds, which fades to many static sound effects. I recently saw a video on this incident, and it’s fascinating that, had it not been for one man who told his subordinates out of instinct not to fire, we would all be dead in the nuclear fire, all from a system error. Paranoid about copyright, as warned in the assignment, I created each sound file used by generating 3 distinct sounds in Audacity, then altering it to suit the need.

Weekly Summery #4

This week was long, but there were some good times. The Super Bowl was great, which constantly went back and fourth, with Kansas City coming back in the fourth quarter to win past a double point deceit. I spent many nights of staying awake until sunrise doing homework, and ran out of food during the week, so I had to ration food and skip most meals. Here are the assignments I did throughout the week: http://ds106.gloriousdudelsack.com/uncategorized/assignment-bank-assignment-colorize-it-3-stars/
