So this next assignment was an interview music mash up.  The idea here was to add a response to interview questions with snippets of songs.  I found this fun to work on, but had to make the audio clip short due to upload capacity.

I decided to use Jimmy Kimmel as the interviewer and the videos above are what i used as well.  I pretty much just converted the youtube videos above into mp3 format and did some small editing in audacity.  I didn’t really have an objective for this assignment, as to what i wanted to get from it or what i was going for.  It was a hassle in itself looking for the right interviewer for this.  In most of the interview videos i could find the interviewee would cut in before the interviewer was done with their question, this caused problems and would ruin the effect.  I also tried lowering the volume of the snippets before adding them to the track but this was more work and wasn’t necessary.

In my own critique and summary the audio came out great, however another problem that i had was trying to leave some space in between the interviewers questions before the snippet cut in.  For the sake of avoiding the entire clip sounded cluttered.  This may be noticed at the beginning of the audio, however it does turn out sounding great.

The songs in order are:

Chief Keef “I don’t like”

Drake “I got money to blow”

Jay z “Money Ain’t a Thing”

Pharrell “I’m Happy”

Martin Solveig & Dragonette “Hello”
