For this assignment (worth 4 stars), I had to make some spooky sounds using my own recordings and editing.
To create this, I used Garageband to edit a clip that I had been saving of an ominous voicemail that my grandmother left on our house phone. The song is similar to my “Hello David, This Is Mary”:
I like to take things that at first glance seem maybe slightly humorous or unimportant and make them more scary/funny. That’s what I was trying to do with the voicemail from my grandma. I used vocal editing to highlight her paranoid attitude towards a nurse that had been working at her nursing home. Then, I added a beat and music using a MIDI keyboard. The megaphone voice effect plus the minor chord progression qualifies the song as “spooky.” I ended with bird noises to keep things light and comical.
