FATALE

Chirping With Happiness

Victoire Absinthe always feels a special, hard to describe feeling after she visits a bank, and comes back with a very, very ┬ánice withdrawal… it sounds a little something like this…

 

 

Victoire may be a femme fatale but that doesn’t mean the woman doesn’t feel any sort of happiness! I used birds chirping, wind rustling through grass, a happy jazz tune with ukulele, and the sound of rustling coins and gun shots to show her feeling of happiness through sound.

I didn’t make up any of these sound clips myself- except for the change clicking. That one was me. The others I found on Youtube, and then put into Audacity and edited.

Ukulele

Gunshots

I’ve been hinting at Victoire’s other occupation- writing trashy romances doesn’t land you in very nice hotels. Can you guess what she REALLY does for a living?

Here is the LINK to the original assignment, if you want to give it a whirl!

This assignment was 3 stars, by the way

    Nice work, now where did you get the sounds? Did you make them yourself? Find them online? Let us know.

      I will! I got the clips off youtube, so I’ll reference that in my posts.

    Well, at least she is happy when she shoots things! I am listening to this as snow falls outside, and it reminds me that spring will come eventually (and then there is a gunshot)! Great work!!

    Your picture of the SoundCloud and the song go well together so it gives spring has already came! Really nice work and I was listening with my little bit of head shaking and at the end I was surprised by the gun sound! :) Really nice work!

      Thank you! I wanted people to be surprised by the gun sound… i thought it added to my noir character.

    This tune is stuck in my head in more ways than one … the happiness of the tune and then the out-of-the-blue gun shots really makes me anxious to know what’s really up with your character! I also appreciated how you used this assignment to broaden your character and add a different dimension … a dynamic character is a good character, especially in noir, and this little ditty captured those dynamics well!
