Programming Project 3
This programming project may be done individually or in groups of two.
Keep in mind that you may not work
with the same person on more than two
of the programming projects, excluding the final
project. If you work with a teammate, hand in one
copy of your code with both names on it. It is okay to get help from the
TAs and/or the instructor if you get stuck, but you should try to do it
on your own first.
The objective of this project is to combine a number of the features
we have learned up until this point for manipulating sounds with some
creative expression to create a collage from several sounds.
Creating the Collage
- Choose several sounds (at least 3) that you find audibly
appealing. They could come
from the MediaSources folder, your own collection, or from the Web
- Your collage must include each sound at least twice - once in
original form, and once changed in some way. You must use a different
technique to change each sound. You may place the sounds
in any order you find pleasing.
- You have a variety of techniques for changing sounds:
- Increase, reduce, or normalize volume
- Crop out parts of a sound
- Change frequency
- Blending sounds
- Any other sound technique discussed in class
(mirror, add, echo, etc) or that you want to create.
Design Questions: How many
sounds will you use? Will any of them have a changed frequency? How long will your sound be? What do you
need to know to determine this time?
What functions do you need from
other labs? What effects would sound
creatively pleasing with your file choices?
- Write functions (or copy some from previous labs and mini-labs)
to achieve the variations you choose. You should also have a function
that puts everything together to create the collage. This function is
necessary so that you have a record of how you created the collage. If
you just create it from the command line, there is no way to see how it
- Submit the file you created for this project via
- Put a link to your audio collage on your course web page.
