When we tell stories with sound, sonic quality twirls with, sticks to, and (sometimes radically) transforms our words. In our first four weeks, we’ll build the technical foundation necessary to tell the kinds of stories we hear on This American Life, Radiolab, and the strongest experimental podcasts. We’ll use quick production prompts using Adobe Audition (let us know if you have a different sound software) to practice recording techniques, explore/befriend editing software, and work with our own voices in narration and interviewing. In the end, you’ll be ready to (maybe radically) produce the kinds of stories we explore in Crafting the Story in Sound.
