What I hear out of my window…
After writing an entry about what I see from my bedroom window, I thought it would be nice to add some sound to it, to complete the mental picture. I can hear different sounds: cars passing by, birds singing and people chatting but the more characteristic are the church bells and men playing football.
Below are the links to two audio recordings:
football_players.m4a (1' 24'' - you might need to turn up the volume full blast to hear this. I even managed to end the recording with the referee's whistle!)
church_bells.m4a (1' 8'')
My favourite one is obviously the bells. The church is so close that the music really seems to be inside my room!
This entry was also meant to be a way of experimenting with audio recordings as I had never used them before. I recorded the clips with my iphone and then uploaded them to this entry. Hence when you click on the links an automatic download should start and your default media player should play the recording. About AudioBoo I decided to leave it for another time. I haven't even done any editing for these audio files as I haven't got a clue on how to do it. They're just very amateurial in style.

I almost clicked on the link and then worried that there might be a virus attached. I’m here by myself for a while so can’t get advice on that. I’ve recently learnt the art of transporting web page links by email. This was quite a “Eureka” moment though I realise now that there’s nothing to it and it was sheer laziness that prevented me from trying it in the past. I recently bumped into a friend who I don’t see very often and I was explaining to her that it was mainly my laziness behind the reason for me not keeping up a course I’d started. She said “I really can’t believe that of you, you’re definitely not lazy.” I was really quite thrilled that she perceived me in that way, especially as she’s someone I’ve worked with in the past but the fact remains that I really can be quite lazy – not always, though!
P.S. I can bring my latest link here to you if you like (it’s actually only my second one!)

Guilia – this is brilliant. And what a great idea for a blog. What you see and then what you hear. Brilliant. I managed to download the files and listen to them. Is that REALLY what you hear in your bedroom. As you say, it sounds as though you have a football team and a load of church bells by your bedside!
Do try audioboo. It is sooooo easy and it’ll launch the sound from your blog page (no need for your readers to download files).
This is everything that multimedia is about. i am so pleased you have given it a try before the term ends. Well done.

thanks for your comments. You’re welcome to hear the recordings I put on the entry: no virus attached. It’s safe to download.
Next time I’ll try to use audioboo so the audio file will be launched directly from the blog page
Please, do post your link here. :)
