Piano Story

In accordance with this assignment, here is a day in the life of Danny Keys through audio. His job is to play piano in a saloon, so the majority of the sound here is music. Here we go through his work day, warming up on the piano, playing through the day, and slowing down as people filter out until the music is done.

I admit, I feel like I could have done a lot better with this assignment than the final piece here, but I am still new to audio editing and this alone took me a few hours to do. I have learned a lot, though, so my goal is to be relatively proficient by the end of this week.

I used the program Audacity to compile audio clips from Freesound. The clips entail piano phrases and saloon/bar ambiance sounds, with a little guitar thrown in the mix to round out the music.
