Help it’s an emergency!!! Ever made an emergency call to 911? Hopefully if you have, it wasn’t anything life threatening. But on a less tense note, for those who have never made a 911 call what if you can recreate your own call? That was the main idea of this project that I did from the ds 106 audio assignments. The purpose of the assignment was to create a recording of a 911 emergency how you think it would be but be creative. I chose to do a short ridiculous 911 phone call. I used Adobe Audition to do all the editing and this time it was a little more interesting. Previously I’d done a project that would’ve been better if I captured the realistic essence of it. For example, obtaining or recreating actual restaurant sounds would’ve made my past project way better. But for this project I did my best to create the sounds of those who work as the phone recipients for 911 emergencies. It was also cool to make the phone call recording sound like an actual voice on the phone. All these effects were available on audition. The phone call and dog bark samples were downloaded via YouTube. The realistic touch was provided by the background office sounds which would through the point of view of the recipient. I thought the project came out very well. Once again I also used the H2N Zoom for the initial voice recordings. Hope you enjoy listening to the ridiculous phone call.
