The City Rings


Brittany mixing Germany

Today, we started the second session with exploring the website and listening the Mysounds from Germany (BMS). We are looking forward to see your pictures to the next session !


We tried to guess what object was used to produce each sound, and we associated a gesture to each sound (to tear, crease, tap, shake…). We tried to imagine what recordings could be sound effects movie (eg. crumpled and torn paper to represent the fire burning, shake pencils in glass jar made us think of a musical instrument, maracas). We imagined the ways of producing and material.




We noticed that we sometimes used the same objects (scissors, pencils, table and chair) and there was similarities. We found differences between the sounds produced with the same object. Every action on the object produces a different sound and so relates a different story (eg paper ripped, wrinkled, rubbed).


We discovered the Freesound website and we could see that all our Mysounds are online. We can listen our Mysounds at home and it’s the chance to introduce The City Rings to our family and friends!




Finally, We did a selection of four sounds and we started an audio editing with BMS sounds. We have worked with pairs (2) on laptops to create our first soundscape with the software Audacity.





We learned how to use this software, how to import, edit and level the sound.
We gave a title to our sound composition, this is the result of soundscapes from BMS “My sounds” :




Mayola and Galeno created their soundscape entitled “Flac Flic DJ”

“Untitled”, Kylian and Oscar

This soundscape was created by Lindsay and Alicia, its title is “School crazy”.

Yuna and Imane, “The Factory”.

Elodie and Iris, “Sounds fake”.

Sarah and Arielle, “The party”.

Timothé and Marcel, “Crazy laptops”.

Nelo and Eliott, “Funny sounds”.



“Kenavo” ! (Breton language for “Bye” or “au revoir” in french)
