Assignment (3 stars)
For this assignment, we had to find a song and reverse the music, to make the song sound somewhat different, but still similarly enough that people can guess what it is based on 3 clues. Because of copyright fears, I have just uploaded the song directly to WordPress, instead of SoundCloud.
- This song was released in February, 2015
- This song peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100
- This song has sold over 100 million copies worldwide
The tune itself is still pretty recognizable, so I assume it is pretty easy to identify what it is.
To complete this assignment, I first found the song on Youtube, and used a Youtube-to-mp3 converter to open it in Audacity. I then used the ‘reverse’ effect under the ‘effects’ menu, and saved and exported the song. I thought that this was an effective song to use for this assignment, as even though it is reversed and sounds like gibberish, it is/was popular enough in mainstream society that it would probably still be recognizable to most people.
