From Concept to Completion: Audio Storytelling in the Public Radio Style
Are you obsessed with NPR? Do you have a story you’ve always wanted to tell with sound? In this 4-part series we’ll cover all the steps to creating a digital audio story including recording, editing, mixing, and writing for the ear. Come to the first class with an idea, and I’ll help you turn it into into a completed audio project that you can burn onto a CD, post on your website or Facebook, or email to your family and friends. Equipment is provided but individual laptops and/or recording equipment are welcome. The workshop will break down as follows: class 1-conceptualizing an audio piece and tools of the trade; class 2- recording and interviewing; class 3- editing and mixing; class 4- critique, resources, distribution.

Intro to Digital Audio Storytelling
Stories are best told by the people who live them. In this workshop you will learn basic digital audio recording and editing to produce public-radio-style features, oral histories, and other sound-rich documentaries. Together, we will create a short audio feature that you can use as a guide for future personal projects. We will cover interview and recording techniques, tips for telling stories with sound, and basic digital editing and mixing. Recording and editing equipment will be available for your use in class, but we will also discuss how to set up your own digital recording suite at home.
