ds106 radio

Monday’s ds106 radio show was very interesting. It was not at all what I was expecting (although I didn’t really know what to expect haha). We listened to an analysis that reflected on climate change through using an old radio show. It demonstrated how sound art in the old radio show really illustrated the infrastructure and environment. At one point in the show we could hear a loud sound of rats overtaking a lighthouse. I would have never guessed that the noise was actually made by wet corks on a sheet of glass. The creative ways the show created sound without having special technology was very interesting to see. The show also employed sounds to denote safety vs. danger. I am glad I listened to the show, because I would have never learned about this kind of background of sound design, and it showed me how using sounds can really add to the story and help tell it.
