My audio tour took place on the bridge that faces Manzanita Lake and was designed to transport the listener across the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. A good portion of the sounds were recorded at my house and on campus, while the unattainable sound effects were found through sources online. The one constant throughout the piece was the sound of trickling water--except during the Winter segment when there was no ambient sound, as the water would be frozen or drained. I also edited all the traffic sounds so that they would be consistent with the setting and were heard only through the left speaker (the closest street is to the west of the lake when the listener is facing north). I originally had a track of descriptive dialogue, but decided it was way too distracting and would be more effective to listen to only the sounds of nature.
