Welcome to sounddawg.net...
AN ALL-NEW WEBSITE…
For those of you familiar with the original sounddawg website, this new iteration offers a fresh look, familiar content, easier navigation and additional capabilities: Soon, for example, we’ll add RSS subscriptions for notification of new stories and other content.
If you are new to the site, the navigation menu at the top will lead you to understanding what it’s all about along with some details on the history of acoustic storytelling, what you’ll find in the audio archives and something about the pioneers of the form.
IT’S THE SOUND!
One important aspect of audio storytelling is in the fidelity of the sound. All of the sound stories here were produced utilizing high fidelity field recordings and equipment–including uncompressed .wav files whenever possible–and they’re streamed at higher quality than most websites. The experience is noticeably better than can be found on FM radio and on many podcasts.
If you let it, the sound can place you in the scene, creating a sense of place, a sense of being there, igniting your imagination on an acoustic soundstage!
If you’re interested in the craft of audio storytelling, as this site grows you’ll find articles, commentary, links and blog posts all about it.
To start with, I’ve posted some recent articles I recently published on my LinkedIn site–reflections on the challenges of storytelling faced by a new generation of radio documentary podcast producers using sound as a fundamental element in telling stories.
