Audio is a great medium to use for fictional storytelling. It can be used to heighten feelings of escapism or to tell a story in ways that cannot be done through video or the written word.
It’s always a joy to share the creative contributions of our audio fiction producers, and these ones embody the oddly familiar…
And if you’re interested in producing experimental audio, keep an ear out as we may have a workshop coming up that would be perfect for you!
‘Fish’ by Cristina Marras
Sometimes an image in a dream feels important. You wake up feeling compelled to write it down before it slips away amidst your morning thoughts.
Cristina recalls a menacing fish, nightmares from when she was a child and fragments of cartoons that mix up with images of friends, lost or out of reach. She, like everybody else, tries to come to terms with a new reality that makes it impossible to move freely.
Producer: Cristina Marras
