Project 4 - Make a Sound Collage
Due Date: Wednesday December 1, 2010 at 11:59 pm
Use bits and pieces of soung file(s) to create a new
sentence of at least 7 words long. The result is to
have at least 10 sound bits combined together. Note that
the if your sentence is less than 10 word long, you will
need to somehow add extra sound bits as part of your sentence.
This could be done in the form of repeating a word (or part
of a word) for emphasis. When this is done the repetition
must be different from the original (different volume,
different pitch, etc.).
The sound bits can come from one sound file or from
multiple sound files. Your program should have the user
select a file (this could be any file) from the directory
containing your sound file(s) and then automatically read
in the sound file(s) used by your program. This is similar
to what was done for the image files for Project 3.
The resulting sound must be the result of combining at least
10 sound bits together; however, you may not just combine
the same sound bit together 10 times.
See page 300 in the text for sample indexes from the
sound file preamble10.wav.
Once your sentence is is created, add a background soundtrack
similar to what was done in one of the Labs.
For 10 points extra credit, create one of the following sentences
which were taken submitted as a favorite quote or joke as
part of Lab 1.

If you need extra .wav files check out the following
web sites with famous quotes. Most of the sites contain
(at least most of) the text of the quote which will help
in finding different words.
You are allowed to receive help on this project from other
students who are also taking CS 101. Each student must still
complete and submit his/her own project. You will be required
to include a Collaboration Statement somewhere on your
project if you receive help. This statement can simply be
something like the following:
For this project, I received help from the following member of CS 101.
This statement should list each helping student's name
in a comment in the "header comment" of your Java file that
includes the main() method.
Submission of your Project
You must electronically submit all of your files (all .java files,
any sound files and any other files used)
via assignment link for Project 4 in Blackboard.
