This week we are challenging you to create a remix with some of your own sounds.   How can you add a personal touch to your music?   Record some sounds around your home and remix them with Common and Ciara audio clips to create a song that reflects your life now.  It could be the chime of entering another online class, the silence on a usually busy road, or the noise of all of your siblings at home together.  Include one or multiple new sounds into your song. Use functions such as fitMedia(), setEffect() , and makeBeat () to remix the sounds.

  • The remix must be a minimum of 20 seconds but less than 2 minutes

  • It must include at least one stem from Common or Ciara

  • It must include one uploaded sound (recorded) remixed into the song

  • You should use other functions such as fitMedia (), setEffect () or makeBeat to compose your song.
