Have you ever visited a site and music immediately began playing? I don’t know how you feel when that happens, but I hate it. I will go back and visit another site, or quickly grab the info I need and bail.
I was afraid this chapter would be dry with technical language or encourage the idea of using sound upon entering your site. However, I found that the same rule applies with sound as it does with images and movement: sound needs to have a purpose and move the story along.
Felder does a good job of explaining the process for adding sound — from idea creation to recording tips. She even explains how to create a pop filter to get rid of those nasty pops and cracks from microphones to use during podcasts.
The comic is imaginative, beautiful, and creepy. I have seen it several times and am still uneasy every time I read it. It is one of my favorite stories I have read recently, and you will notice everything I have discussed in the last few weeks applies. This is a great example of what to do and how to do it well.
This story is a webtoon, which is an animated comic strip that is available online. I warn you, this webtoon is not for the faint of heart. If you do not like scary things or are not an adult, I would proceed with caution. If you don’t believe me, check out their warning before you read it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
