I did this Dramatic Reading Remix assignment for 3.5 stars. I found Chelsea Irizarry’s Shadow Theme Song and thought it sounded really cool. I decided to do a dramatic reading of Frank Sinatra’s The Lady is a Tramp, because I’ve established it as Delia’s favorite song. Dramatic readings are one of my favorite things- I have a special hat for them.
Yes, I was wearing it while dramatically reading lyrics.
I recorded the lyrics in audacity and then imported the theme song. I then added silence to space out the lines in order to make the whole thing flow better. I also put the sax solo where the instrumental solo is in the song itself. The theme song actually went surprisingly well with The Lady is a Tramp- I was expecting a terrible disaster! I did normalize my voice and made the song quieter, but there was very little other editing done. I’ll see how I feel about this in the morning since I’m incredibly tired, but right now I’m feeling pretty good about this remix. As always, criticism is welcome, wanted, and appreciated!
