At Dawn We Ride!

Audio Assignment:

Dramatic Reading Remix 3.5

For this assignment we were supposed to read a song incredibly dramatically and set it to other music. Then we were supposed to post the original song for comparison.

I chose my favorite song at the moment. ‘I Lived’ by OneRepublic is a very passionate song about doing everything in life that you want to do. It’s very inspirational to many fans of the band.

So this is the original song. I hope you guys like it as much as me.

And here is my remake of it. I used music from Lord of The Rings so that’s why you see some of the fellowship. As I was dramatically reading the lyrics I realized that it kind of sounded like I was giving a speech to soldiers about to go off to war or something similar to that.


For this assignment I used Audacity to record my  reading of the song. I then imported the background music and cut it down to only what I needed. I exported the file and uploaded it to Soundcloud and the lastly embedded it into this post.

For the original song, I looked it up on Soundcloud and embedded it into the post.
