In several sentences, describe the sequence of events suggested by the sound design. What is the story?

I hear repetitive loops that inconsistently follow up one another and throughout the first phase of the whole sound it creates tension in my ears with several hints of fear.

The build up of stress however, dies off as the sound dies off in the distance of its destination.

6) Student name: Lilly

In several sentences, describe the sequence of events suggested by the sound design. What is the story?

Every sound around you suggest that you’re the one not moving and perhaps that’s because you remain an observer of the environment you’re in. I hear movements of subways, announcements for public information. During the whole sequence I hear people coming in and out from where you stand however you never move until a loud glimpse of your mental displacement in time shows up. This glimpse sets the tone for the quiet ending of such unexpected sequence.

10) Student name: Nora

In several sentences, describe the sequence of events suggested by the sound design. What is the story?

The start of the sequence is quite catchy as you create a noticeable loop to interact with my hearing. The feeling quickly fades into a quiet frying pan that evolves to the loud subway crossing your surroundings. Furthermore you manipulate my conception of reality as you jazz snap in a loop at the very end of the loop consecutively.

A step into the sequence I notice through the moving and swiping cards, this fact is confirmed as I hear the public announcement being told out loud.

The quick jump from silent to loud with the subway movement gives a hint of fear or perhaps just a sense of confusion and displacement.

At first stance the sequence gives some evidence of your recording taking place in a music practice room.

The sounds from the tv start bouncing off different angles suggesting that you’re in the middle of several screens like some kind of control panel.

A few seconds into the sequence and I repetitively hear everyone scanning their ID at the entrance on of one of the newschool buildings.

At first it’s alarming how many cracking sounds are made in the beginning, it almost feels like someone’s squeezing rough bread. Followed by the hint of a fence we eventually run into the sign in sounds of the UC. These glimpses all get shaded by the sudden permanent presence of traffic and the sound of this object you keep tearing apart as you switch these environments. You finally end up in a subway station suggesting that you’ll end up in the Brooklyn bridge city hall

18) Describe your own work. What are the sequence of events suggested by your sound design?

I am primarily in a subway station and I’m finding my way out. Unfortunately as I walk forward this woman in front of me is slowing me down and I can’t get out regardless of the hurry I’m in. I take a shortcut that finally leads me to the streets and that’s my first switch of environment. I get on the streets as I first hear traffic but I quickly approach a restaurant, I even donate some coins as soon as I step in. The bell rings as more people follow me, then I walk past the food being made on the pan and it carries my attention. I join my friends on their table and I can’t help myself but to focus on the almost empty bottle of ketchup they’re trying to share at the table. The sound of it fades off as they give up on their dreams.
