The Invaders Return

Man, this has been a long week. Aside from the remodel I began on my house, we had family visiting and a sick wife to boot. So, my ds106 work had come to a relative halt. I worked on some here and there, but couldn't really sit down and put in some time.

I decided to do a sound story in which the United States revisits the giant's planet...and let's say things go a little bit differently. The story is below.

This is actually about half sound effects from freesound.org and half from my own house remodel, with the different noises being used mostly for the machines that come out of the spaceship. The woman is caught off guard this time, and well...you tell me what happens.

In a perfect world, I would have had a design assignment to go along with this, but I'm just not going to get to it. If I do, I'll be sure to post it.

    Nice sound file. Did you use audacity to make it?

    • Yeah. I grabbed all of the sound effects (UFO, running, etc) from freesound.org. The machines were from my house when we tore out our kitchen last week. I threw them all into Audacity and just mixed them to tell the story.

    I love the idea of making your own sound effects from your house remodel. I’ll be laying tile in my kitchen this week, so it will be interesting to see what I might come up with in terms of effects, thanks for the inspiration, and the great thing about #ds106 is you do what you can and no apologies.
