    Kaitlin Prest's Favorite Things (2018)

    At the 2018 Third Coast Conference, Kaitlin Prest, audio artist, radiophile, creator of The Heart from Radiotopia and The Shadows from the CBC, talked about what has inspired her to push the boundaries of audio making.

    Depth Perception: Techniques for two ears (2018)

    Depth Perception: Techniques for two ears (2018)

    Just as our eyes work together to create a sense of depth perception, so too do our ears...


    And yet, so few radio and podcast productions take advantage of the full stereo field—how differences between the “left” and “right” sides of a mix work together to create an immersive sense of space. How can we use this space to help us show vs. tell in radio storytelling, and create more visceral auditory imagery? In this session from the 2018 Third Coast Conference, Brendan Baker shared ideas, tools, and techniques to enhance our sense of space as both listeners and producers.

    I Love Language (2018)

    I Love Language (2018)

    Behind many audio stories, there’s stacks of paper and documents full of text. Old interview transcripts that predate recording technology. Letters found in a box. Court records. Emails.


    In this session from the 2018 Third Coast Conference, John Delore discussed ways to bring these materials to life in the sonic realm. He outlined fundamental differences between how the written word & the spoken word communicate meaning and emotion and shared ideas for using reenactments and adapting from fiction to tell a story.

    The Art of Noise (2018)

    The Art of Noise (2018)

    What does it mean for a podcast or radio story to be “innovative” or “experimental”? Is it in the writing? The structure? The use of sound?


    At the 2018 Third Coast Conference, Andrew Leland and Michelle Macklem traced the roots of narrative audio from some of the form’s newest producers back through radio history to the medium’s original innovators, with an emphasis on underrepresented and underheard artists. They made a case for the future of experimentation by exploring a treasure-trove of work that has shaped, and weirdened, the way narrative audio sounds.


    There is a treasure trove of extra information and resources that come with this episode. Find them on Producer News and on the Third Coast website.

    Let The Work Be What It Wants To Be (2018)

    Let The Work Be What It Wants To Be (2018)

    Using found reels of an old wire recorder from the 1950's, interdisciplinary artist Alison S. M. Kobayashi created her performance piece, "Say Something Bunny!" heralded by the New York Times as “forthrightly funny and briefly pornographic, it is also sneakily moving."


    At the 2018 Third Coast Conference, Alison invited the audience to participate in an excerpt of the piece. She then examined the performance as a case study in interpreting archival materials through imagination. We can’t share that performance with you here, but you can go see the show “Say Something Bunny!” in New York through July of 2019.


    In this session, Alison shared approaches to unearthing stories in found objects, using structure to embrace chance and discovery, and layering storytelling to engage and challenge audiences.

    Writing for the Ear to See (2018)

    Writing for the Ear to See (2018)

    We make stories for the ear, but there’s no escaping the highly visual nature of the work we produce...


    No other medium allows its audience to see as imaginatively, as privately, and as sensitively, as audio. But how do we go about accessing this visual capacity of audio? How do we find those ways of describing a scene, an object, a person, in a way that brings our audience the full Technicolor experience. Focusing on script, this session from the 2018 Third Coast Conference looks at visual language. Australian producer Sophie Townsend shares tips for using narration to allow our audience to see what they’re hearing.

Brilliant

Thanks so much for this podcast. I am doing a lot of self-teaching, learning how to make podcasts and audio stories, and listening to these talks has been a massive help and given me loads to think about. For anyone who wants to get better at making audio, I can't recommend this enough.
