Digital Humanities Club: Week 6

On November 6, we moved to everyone working on audio mixes, using Audacity. We'll likely spend the rest of the semester experimenting with the software. Next semester, we'll work on mixed media projects, blending in what our audio and graphic design works. .

For now, we're looking forward to learning about and playing with audio mixing. The students have started off by just trying out different effects on a poem, while also adding instrumentals. We'll see where the experiments lead us.

I'm interested in whether the audio will occupy their interests the way experimenting with graphic design and comic book images did. The students seem to enjoy music quite a bit, but I'm not sure about the extents that we translate into interest in audio mixing. Perhaps part of what drew them to graphic design was because they were less familiar with that kind of work that with music. We'll see.
