Very pleased to be featured in the latest edition of Electronic Sound Magazine in an excellent article by Scanner (Robin Rimbaud), which places Akiha Den Den in the historical context of experimental radio. To be able to create radio drama where the sound design and music doesn't get relegated to a supporting role, but instead takes equal billing with the cast in telling the story, is something I've been working towards for a while. Its the culmination of a lot of hard work for myself and Neil Cargill (writer and director) in a particularly rewarding collaboration.
Listen to Akiha Den Den here.
We will be talking about the creative process of making Akiha Den Den at the excellent The Sound of Story symposium taking place this week in Brighton. Billed as An Exploration of Sound and Music in Storytelling, the event runs over 3 days and features talks, demonstrations, discussions and workshops from leading practitioners in the field.
We'll be speaking at the symposium on Friday the 18th at Brighton Dome Studio and will be joined by Sue Harding (Foley Artist - Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Imitation Game, Le Misérables and In Bruges), Matthew Herbert (Musician / Artist / Producer / Writer - Life in a Day, Bodily Functions, One Pig), Anne Kroeber (Sound Designer / Effects Editor / Recordist -Blue Velvet, Dead Poets Society, The Horse Whisperer), and Paul Davies (Supervising Sound Editor / Sound Designer - Hunger, The Queen, ’71, We Need to Talk About Kevin). Quite a line up!
