Final Project Update #1

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

I picked out a loop that i want to use for the beat of my rap that i’m doing for my final project. i used two different beats so far (one for the chorus and one for the verses) and i may add another one for a bridge if i get that far. my next step is to pick some loops for a simple melody to make the song catchy and for continuity. i want this to sound like an early 90’s rap song. i love how cheesy they sound between the simple computer generated beats in addition to the extremely simple lyrics. great for making a catchy informational rap like i am.

ds106 Final Project

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

ok, so i’ve been doing quite a bit of brainstorming over the past couple weeks about what i want to do for my final project. I think that my favorite portion of the class was the audio segment. i’m really into music (who isn’t!?) so i thought i should record a song. i decided that to make a ds106 rap song (exact title still on the way..) that will touch on every topic of the class and maybe poke a little fun at the subject. i’m going to make all the music by downloading loops and recording my own voice rapping lyrics that i will write on my own. i had no idea what ds106 was going to be like when i signed up. i’m glad i took it of course but i’m making this rap for any future student who is considering taking this class (hopefully it will encourage them to sign up!). I will keep everyone updated on my blog as to the progress i’m making. good luck to everyone else on your final projects!
