Capture the Sound of Your Current Location
For this activity, begin by recording the ambient background and natural sounds in your current environment (consider going outside if that offers more recording potential). After you have collected these sounds, record some narration of yourself describing your environment and what you hear.
Once you have finished capturing your recordings, upload all of these files to a computer with Adobe Audition editing software installed. Follow the steps in the SNO Adobe Audition Introduction Video to create and export a narrated audio track about your current location. These exported files can then be submitted to an instructor for proof of participation or for grading.
