John 3:16-21

For this assignment, I had my friend Kathleen read the following excerpt from the Bible:

16 “For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God."
- John 3:16-21 ESV

Recording 1


Recording 2



In recording 1, the mic was placed in front of the speaker on a table such that it was below head level and angled facing the mouth. This way, the microphone didn't capture as many clicks and pops from the movement of the mouth and picks up mostly just the vocals. In recording 2, the mic was placed on the opposite side of the desk facing the speaker with the gain raised in order to pick up the vocals clearly. Although the recordings are the same, there are clear differences between the two. In the first one, the vocals come out clearly and there are very few to no sounds audible in the background. Because the mic was so close, the sounds of the speaker's lips moving is also audible along with the speech. In the second recording, background noise, such as movement in the room and the buzzing of the lights, can clearly be heard along with the speech. Overall, the speech has a less full sound and less bass frequencies due to the distance of the mic from the speaker. It is also more difficult to pick out the movements of the speakers mouth.
