After much deliberation, I chose the sound collage. i chose this because I wanted to create a more “in the moment” kind of feeling since my blog is “another travel blog”. I thought the other two options relied more on vocals/talking points, while the sound collage relied more on the feelings/ambiance that traveling gives you, and with traveling the goal is usually to see and experience new things- it relies less on people’s voices and conversation. The concrete sounds that I used (waves, gulls, voices) are sounds that usually come to mind while on vacation. I chose to incorporate The Simpsons and people saying “Hello” in different voices because it gives two perspectives on traveling, The Simpsons focuses on the more annoying part of traveling and the “Hello” segment brings attention to the enlightening part of traveling.
This fits conceptually because it gives more than just a visual representation of my blog. Usually when people thing of vacations or traveling you think of visuals, but I also want there to be some ambiance to my blog, so Project 3 help with the audio. This will go in a post on the home page of my website. I will also put in the “My Projects” Page. I am choosing to put it both places because it is the most current work I have done, so I want to display it on the front of my page, but I also want to make it accessible in the future so I am also places it in my Pages section. I am putting the Written Statement, the actual audio project 3, and this (logistics statement) together.
