The story I chose to do for the Sound Effects Story – Assignment Bank ( was of a cat during its feeding time.

The post states:

“Tell a story using nothing but sound effects. There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects. Use at least Five different sounds that you find online. The story can be no longer than 90 seconds.”

I pondered on this assignment for about a day just listening to the sounds around me. Than the next morning, I had an idea.

This idea came to me when I was feeding the cats this morning and I heard the can open. I thought this was the best idea I could have came up with.  I used five different sounds to create one masterpiece. All of the sounds I used came from Freesound. I was struggling to find the last sound I needed to have five different ones and then I thought about the bowl I place on the ground and how that makes a sound!

My lovely creation:

Overall, I would give this assignment a 6 out of 10. 1 being easy and 10 being hard. I say this because finding the sounds was easy, but this was my first assignment I needed to overlap the sounds to get right tempo. It was a lot of clicking buttons and a lot of replaying the audio. We did great in the end; I like to think. For some reason the eating and drinking sound similar but if you listen closing, you can hear the cat swallow the water at the end of the audio.
