Sleep Tight!

(listen to the entire track)

WARNING! For those who are squeamish I suggest you do not listen!!!




This project is a compilation of scary movie clips along with sound effects. We are usually use to watching scary movies and being frighten by them because of what we see.  My goal was to create a track of all the scary sounds we would hear in these horror movies while maintaining the scary effect.

I decided to Use Audition to do my editing. I took most of the sounds from YouTube and some from I ended up using about seven different sound clips to create the entire track. It was a little challenging for me to find the right sounds that made sense while mixing because I wanted to keep the same theme all throughout the track. So, I decided to use one main track under the other tracks through out the entire session. Also, another challenge was making sure certain tracks were not louder than others. For example, I turned down the main track so the interview with Jeffery Dahmer could be heard clearer. Since I’ve used Audition before I am familiar with settings that I needed to complete my project. The one thing I forgot was how to export my session out. I quickly hopped on YouTube to refresh my mind on this and I came across a video that actually was very informing.

Check it out!

To sum up everything, the project overall was fun to edit and also made me relive all those scary movies that made me have bad dreams at night.

  1. Hey Asil I thought this was a good audio project. I get the compiliation of the scary effects you were trying to create using pop culture and also adding a weird comedy spin to the Jeffery Dahmer interview. The transisitons work well and I really wasn’t expecting the Scary Movie last segment but its clearly part of the whole horror movie culture, which in my opinion is more comedy than anything else. I also liked that you payed attention to audio levels of different sound files, which made it less shocking on the ears in terms of hearing levels. What I would have liked to see though, is you talking about the software that you used, whether it was Audacity, Audition, or even Pro Tools. Then you could have included the challenges you had, what tools in the software you learned from experimenting with. You could also include what made up your research as well. I really believe with the amount of work I believe went into this project, this could easily be a level 2 post and with more depth even a level 3 if you can do anymore that is.

    • Jason you have motivated me to make this a level 2 or even a level 3, and that is what I will do. : )
      Also, to be able to hear the full length of the ending try uploading the post in firefox; I am able to hear the ending correctly through this browser.

  2. This was one of my favorite projects to listen too. I thought that your idea was very unique and creative. I thought you did a great job at achieving your goal of keeping the scary feel to it. Personally I enjoyed hearing it because I love scary movies so it was a thrill. Your editing skills were above par. You implemented those different movie scene sounds together in such a way that they flowed into smooth transitions of one another. So overall great job I really enjoyed it. Great project. But you left out the best movie sound effects of all….THE EXORCIST!! C’mon.
