Experimental Narrative – Task 1

Following on from the lecture based on cliche’s I was given the task of creating two pieces of media.

  1. Cut up word for word piece and create a new piece of text from them.
  2. Using a piece of sound recording from a recent interview form a 20 second piece of experimental narrative.

From this I used a news article found in the Birmingham Post. Here I got the text of:

Before turning to the audio recording or Russell Brand.

Where I used audacity and split it through select sentences, that I then thought was interesting to add together. Which I then altered through the use of adding extra grain, speeding pieces up or slowing them down and stretching them out til the words word unidentifiable. Creating both a conversation and a backing track.

This is my final piece.
