There were several things I discovered while creating my sound piece and recording things. The first and most problematic is the effect of recording wind or moving with a mic. I thought that the result of this would be small amounts of ambient noise. It was instead, a very loud and somewhat painful distortion of sounds. The second was that there seems to be a good amount of luck involved with recording. While recording some light rain out my window, a police car came tearing through my street. Straight after it went silent, the rain stopped. I decided to make this the opening feature of my soundpiece.
While assembling my sounds, I mainly adjusted the volume of individual sounds within each recording. I was able to amplify the sound of the police car and remove the distorted sounds of the wind.
I played around with overlapping folley sounds I reordered in the sound suite with the sounds from my chosen space. I really enjoyed the outcome of this and if I had more folley sounds and possibly a more planned idea, I would have been able to create something interesting.
