Telling a Story Through Sound

Audio storytelling is a somewhat new idea to me. Of course I’ve listened to the radio and broadcasts. Sound is critical for telling stories, but how do you tell stories through sound only?

Different sounds create different moods throughout a story. Such as, light and blissful sounds create a very happy mood. Or the Star Wars sound creates a very specific type of mood.

Abumrad’s videos opened up what sound could mean for people on the radio. He explains how you can relate to both the radio host and the listener. Somehow, with the right feeling/mood sound is able to connect people of all different ethnicities. That is something to always remember when considering sound or what’s its purpose.

You can watch the videos both here and here.
