Nostalgia

For my first assignment in Immersive Listening: Designing Sound for VR, i had to design a stereo sound design sketch, and honestly I had no idea what it is. So I waited for T.K's email a couple of days after the class to start working on the assignment.


I created a scene using only sound, which was challenging to me because I've never worked with sound before and it's my first time using Reaper.


I suggest you listen to the sound clip before reading the rest for you to decipher what happened. A couple of classmates thought it was totally different than what I intended which was very interesting to hear.



Description: I walk towards my apartment and I can briefly hear a song in the background before opening the door. The music gets louder as I open the door. I find my sister sitting on the couch listening to my mom’s favorite song, so I take off my shoe, sit next to her and open our “memories drawer” to take out a family photo album. As we flip the pages, you can hear both of us laughing at some happy moments.


Original sound files:

  1. Me walking to the apartment.

  2. Throwing the keys.

  3. Flipping through the pages and laughing.

Sound files from freesound.org:

  1. Sitting down.

  2. Sound of the drawer opening.

  3. Taking off shoes.

Song in the background:

  • Om Kolathoum, Alf Leila w Leila


Note: I had to convert the format of the sound clip to be added in here from .wav to .mp3
