Podcast for D&AD: Imagined Landscapes

Inspired by Audio

DAD.Hex_.Yellow

Over the last year In The Dark has been digging into it’s library of audio shorts to pull together a series of curated podcasts for the D&AD Inspired by Audio website. The idea  behind this has been to introduce new audiences to some of our favourite audio shorts and give them an idea of what can be achieved through creative audio production. If you’ve never been to one of our events before, these podcasts will give you a good sense of the material we play.

So far we’ve  explored the ‘Sound of Music‘, what’s ‘Inside Your Head‘ and most recently I produced an episode exploring the use of sound and story telling to create ‘Imagined Landscapes‘.

Each episode is presented by Nina Garthwaite and produced by a different member of In the Dark, you can find the full collection featured at the bottom of the Inspired by Audio website.

Imagined Lanscapes

Creating a sense of place through sound can often help us connect with the human stories that are so strongly tied to our surroundings.

In this episode producers have used sound in different ways to provide colour and personality to the spaces that they’re exploring, from the dark soundscapes of an abandoned prison to the vibrant musicality of a Baltimore cityblock.

So close your eyes and take a trip across some sonic terrain…
