Our Weekend Bar Fight

This is the sound project that Steph, Jess and I worked on in class on Thursday. It took forever for me to get this up because of business sorry. But I am getting this up before the deadline. We tweaked it a bit because it was deemed to calm/quiet to be a bar fight and because people thought it was an engagement dinner with ninjas/kung fu people or something.

When we sat down to figure out what to do for this mini project we were at first at a loss. How were we supposed to tell a story using only sounds? Eventually we came up with the idea of a bar fight and we set about trying to find the sounds for it. Our initial plan was much more detailed than what we ended up with in class but we had to simplify it as time was running out and the internet was being terribly slow at downloading the sounds from freesound.org. After the first run-thorugh and some critiques from the class this is our final cut.

    Sounds good! Something to consider: some of the fighting sounds were kinda quiet. If it’s gonna be a bar-fight, they should be the highlight of the piece! They almost sounded like background noise, unless there’s more to the story (like someone is a distant observer doing something else). Still really good layering on it though!

    Thanks for the input 🙂 I was just concerned about the punching/slapping being too loud and too kung fu-y. Perhaps I was a bit too hesitant and made it too quiet.
