Sounds are not just random noises your ears just happen to hear. Sounds are one small piece of something so much bigger. Sounds provide clues and insight into what is going on that your eyes cannot see. This is in both real life situations and for entertainment purposes. I discovered while listening to the DS106Radio broadcast that the story I heard would have been a lot more boring and confusing if it lacked the sounds that were included. If there was no sound of chirping crickets I wouldn’t have known the setting in that scene was taking place at night. Also the pitch, tone, and frequencies can change a sound to meaning one thing to a complete different thing. Personally I was not the biggest fan of the “Moon Graffiti” audio. I think that was just because the static audio he used gave me a massive headache. Although I understood that he was using that audio to add depth and keep to the story he was telling. I would have been completely different without the sound. Like when I made my spooky audio! I feel if I did not include one of any of the sounds I used it would have portrayed something other than what I wanted. I wanted to make the hair on the back of someone’s neck stand up. Having the crunching footsteps and heaving breathing louder made it seem closer while the demonic laugh and woman’s scream were made quieter to sound like it was coming from the distance. I wanted the listener to find themselves surrounded by the sound drawing them into that situation. That is exactly what I believe the creator of “Moon Graffiti” was trying to do and Adbumrad trying to explain. At least that is what I understood.

I am so sorry if this does not make sense. I felt really strongly while writing about this topic I may have not clearly explained for everyone to understand.

I am new to all of this so bare with me. I am a person who is overstressed and overworked. Let's just say I got a short fuse and big attitude. I know my worth and what I deserve. Creativity is not my strong suit, but I am gonna get through it. Welcome to the Circus known as Kayla.
