And that’s a wrap! Well actually… it is more to the tune of an old country song called Ghost Riders in the Sky! For my final project, Summary of Learning, I decided to attempt combining my music skills with what I learned in ECMP 355!
Let’s just say that this was not as easy as I had thought it would be. But in the end, I think I ended up telling the story of my journey throughout this course. Just a quick tip though, don’t pick the key for your song in the morning because your voice changes as the day goes on! Darn those low notes! Anyway, here is what I did:
- Stagelight – I used this program to create an electronic bass line for the song. The quality of the instrument sounds on here are really quite surprising.
- Audacity – This is where I did all the music editing on the vocals, rhythm guitar, and bass. This included looping, mixing, and recording (hundreds of takes).
- Screencastify – Captured what was on my screen to create video files for my final video.
- Movie Maker – Here, I put all the different elements together to get my final video – screenshots, the song, and videos from Screencastify.
