A podcast to help us all become better storytellers in sound. Each episode we hear from an audio artist or producer we admire, and they set us challenges to help sharpen our storytelling skills. Hosted by Phoebe McIndoe and Redzi Bernard.

The Challenge: Create a piece that involves a sonic transfer from one location to another. Send your reponses to us here. Here are ours:

Ariana Martinez, Ariana is a sound artist and story maker living in America. Ariana started out working with physical art and sculpture. We fell in love with their ability to translate the physical world - objects, architecture and space - into sound. Ariana says you don’t need to be an expert in Pro-Tools to create good stories. If you can harness soft-skills like observation and recording real-world detail you’re well on your way to creating amazing stories and sound-rich locations. In this episode we discuss their piece Perfect Love for The BBC, Between the Essays.
