The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Silent Films and Films that are Dark

I’m always fascinated with how Audio Drama compares, contrasts and connects with other media. This fantastic piece on how silent moviesĀ sing when the original orchestral music is played in concert with the film. Music has a powerful effect on the way we take in stories. It’s fascinating that no matter whether you see your stories primarily, or take them in through the ear. Music can provide the mood that draws in the tension of a scene, or the comedy of a moment. Sharon Bee‘s incredible mood mixtures for The Dead Line Anthology and the Wavefront Anthology series has been instrumental in Electric Vicuna Production‘s tension. What music has added to your experience of audio drama?
