The goal of this assignment was to merge a song and its cover.
I choose ‘I Will Always Love You’ originally by Dolly Parton which was re-sang by Whitney Houston almost 20 years lateer. This is one of my favorite love songs and considering the upcoming Valentine’s Day Holiday, it only seemed appropriate.
I used ytmp3 to convert the songs to mp3 files before importing them to Audacity. Here is the final product:
You can tell by the first 5 seconds that Whitney clearly sang a lot slower than Dolly. I also noticed Whitney hit higher notes and had a higher pitch along with dragging the song slower than Dolly’s original.
