Week 7 Summary

This week was not the greatest in regards to my blogging experience as I had several difficulties uploading and accessing my site. Ultimately tough I was able to eventually get everything done and uploaded properly even though this guy kept popping up.

I guess I’ll first start off by recapping my weeks work. This week I completed three daily creates all similar but slightly different in their own ways. The creates involved meme creation, light research on the job market and a fun little chain meme the class collaborated on. A more thorough assessment can be found here if you’re interested.

This weeks major standout was probably the radio group assignment that my colleagues and myself will collaborate on this upcoming week. To summarize the assignment we will be creating a short radio podcast involving our created characters which should allow them to become even more fleshed out. To get a more detailed plan on what Ive been doing and what I’ll be doing in regards to this assignment click here.

Keeping in line with the radio show we all created a bumper/poster/logo which could possibly be used for our program. You can check out my design here.

Lastly this week involved me completing three audio assignments which I absolutely loved. In all I ended up creating two songs and and one Halloween themed beat. I actually really enjoyed the assignments this week and I think they turned out really interesting and Id really recommend a listen.

Halloween Beat

Rapper Collaboration

Radio music

Overall I think the week went really well minus the issues my site experienced. I guess the one positive thing I gathered from this week was the knowledge of solving a server 500 error message on WordPress.

 

Forced Collaboration of XXXtentacion, Lil Dicky, Smokepurp and Lil Uzi

For this assignment I had to force several musicians together to create one unified song. I decided I would select my favorite style of music, that being rap, and try to pin artists that typically wouldn’t be together in a song. I ended up choosing the late XXXtentacion and Smokepurp as two artists that would collab together and added them with artist Lil Dicky. The styles of the three rappers are fairly different from each other and combining them together I felt would be interesting. I used audacity to compile all of my recordings, which took forever due to finding clips of freestyles that had little to no music in the background. Once I found the recording of the lyrics I had to find a beat which suited the three together, which I think I found. Overall the process was extremely fun and I hope everyone enjoys this odd collaboration.
