Audio

Here are some samples of audio projects I have done.

News Package

My news package discusses seasonal affective disorder. I interview a fellow UCM student about their experiences with SAD and things they do to minimize the symptoms.

The audio was recorded using a handheld Shure microphone and a Marantz portable recorder. Post-production was done in Audacity.

Commercial

My commercial project was a 30-second commercial for “The Sun Jacket,” a fictional product.

Voice work was recorded in the University of Central Missouri DMP Labs using the ElectroVoice RE20, a Wheatstone mixing board and Audacity.

Radio Drama: “The Black Hole”

“The Black Hole” is a three-minute radio drama about a college student who falls into a hole after being late for a test.

I wrote the script and recorded the vocals using the Electrovoice RE20 and Wheatstone board in UCM’s DMP Labs Live Radio 2 studio. I also recorded sounds using a Roland portable audio recorder and a shotgun hypercardioid microphone. The project was assembled in Audacity.

Cast:

  • Danielle Friedmeyer as Danielle

Podcast

“The Struggle Bus” is a podcast by college students for college students. In the inaugural episode, me, Danielle Friedmeyer and Nick Distefano discuss anxiety and stress as college students and what we do to manage our feelings.

The podcast was recorded in UCM’s DMP Labs Live Radio 1 studio. The project was posted on Anchor.fm and distributed to 8 platforms, including Spotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts.

The “Popco’s Super Butter Popcorn” commercial was by Danielle Friedmeyer. The roll-in/out sound effects of bus doors opening and closing was “00531 bus door opening closing.wav” by robinhood76 on FreeSound.org, which was distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 license.
