    Sounds from Another World

    by
    by Thomas Pulsifer Countless mediums possess the potential for fascinating storytelling, and nothing proves this more than audio-based storytelling. Many may only consider audiobooks and nothing more when thinking of the storytelling capacity of audio, which is unfortunate, since there’s so much more than can be done with the medium. In Jab Abumrad’s videos aboutContinue reading "Sounds from Another World"

    moon graffiti

    by
    The Soundcloud story, Moon Graffiti, utilizes many audio storytelling techniques to execute a great conspiracy story based on Nixon’s speech “In Event of Moon Disaster”. Beginning with the radio static and clear distress of the impending crash grabs attention and puts the listener directly into the story. It was a

    Moon Landing

    by
    I am a little embarrassed to admit I had to look up the July 20, 1969 moon landing to convince myself that Moon Graffiti was just a story. Matt Evans and Ed Herbstman used different aspects of sound to create a very realistic dialect between Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin

    Audio Reflection

    by
    For the longest time, I had known that there was something unique about audio storytelling, but I could never really figure out how to describe what made it distinct from other mediums. It wasn’t until I watched Jad Abumrad’s videos How Radio Creates Empathy and Digital Shamanism and Old-Fashioned, Newfangled Storytelling Magic that I finally […]

    Audio Reflection

    by
    After looking at the two videos of Jad Abumrad discussing audio storytelling, I have recognized that audio does create a sense of connection. This goes for the tone, the sound, and the perception people take from listening to this “story”. There are many different sources to use to create audio recordings and tell a story. […]

    Audio Reflection

    by
    One thing that Abumrad discussed was how radio shows have a unique feature about them in the fact that you are able to paint a picture in your head of what the story looks like, but it is the listener that ultimately decides what the image in their hea...

    A Chilling Alternative

    by
    On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made a historical landing on the Moon. This is old news to us now. But what if these astronauts had not successfully landed? “Moon Graffiti” by The Truth Podcast explores this chilling possibility. I would recommend listening to it if you have the chance. Part of …

    Audio Reflection

    by
    Audio storytelling, like said by Abumrad, is something that has been around for thousands of years. In todays time there are a ton of ways audio storytelling is presented. Whether it’s a podcast, radio shows, audiobooks, etc… sound will always the biggest part of stories. Why? “Your job is to […]

    How Does Sound Drive Stories?

    by
    Stories would be nothing without sound. Stories have been told over and over again, each time the story teller uses their own unique sound to potentially paint a different picture than the previous story teller. This could contribute to how stories are changed over time. Even if people say the same words, each person can tell a story differently by […]

    Audio Graffiti

    by
    Sound is as vital of a part of storytelling as any medium similar to it such as visuals or texts. If one separates sound from the video that is tagged along with it, it becomes clear that the sound encourages the imagination to create the video in which the sound suggests. In this level of […]

    Moon Graffiti: Time In Space

    by
    I’m gonna be honest. I do not enjoy listening to podcasts and audio storytelling (apart from music) in general. I tend to become very bored very fast. I also get distracted very quickly and realize I don’t really know what is going on. I’m more of a visual person and and I understand the story better. However, the sound effects […]

    Sound and Stories

    by
    After listening to Moon Grafiti, it is evident what a key role sound plays in our ability to visualize information. Sound has the ability to set moods and create emotions. When listening to Moon Grafiti, I felt like I was there, in that moment, listening to them. The sound was so raw and real, the […]

    Audio Reflection

    by

    In the podcast episode “Moon Graffiti” I found the sounds used powerful and chilling. The story created is a solemn one, but the performances of the voice actors sold it. Furthermore, the realistic sounds used when the shuttle crashed made me jump a bit, and the radio sounds created a more authentic experience. When Edward […]
