Today’s Daily Create “Noise pollution!,” submitted by Sandy Brown Jensen, asks you to stand still and record the ambient sounds where you are. It actually specifies you do this in the middle of your day, but by the time I sat down today it was nighttime and all I could hear were the sultry sounds of an early Fall evening in Virginia. So I went outside and made a 30 second recording.
But after that I started playing with a wide variety of effects in Audacity to see what I could do. And one effect, Paulstretch, kinda blew my mind. It sounded like a soundtrack for a David Lynch film. It took the 30 second recording of the singing insects in my back yard and strectched them out to 5 minutes. Kinda trippy. Enoy
