On Monday night our class listen to a audio drama called I Saw Myself Running. Since we’re focusing on audio and sound this week, it was interesting to listen to something where that was truly at the forefront. I listen to podcasts a lot, but I don’t really focus much on the sound and instead focus on the story. While listening to this audio drama, it was kind of impossible to not focus on the sound since it was so present. There were sound effects, voice distortions, and many different people talking throughout the show and it was all overcast with this oldtime-y filter that made the audio sound like you were listening from an old radio!
I really enjoyed being able to listen to the audio drama with everyone tweeting along with it on Twitter. It was like watching a movie with friends!
Here is my thread of my thoughts while listening, although I’m unsure if some of the tweets make sense outside of listening to the audio drama, so be sure to go listen to it!
