Online Workshop 0.2: Audio

December 20th, 2013

Here are some audio productions from our first six-week Transom Online Workshop (TOW). The goal is to stimulate basic interviewing, audio recording, and story structure skills, and get learners out talking to strangers. From their second assignment, Audio Interviews:

  1. Same as the first assignment, but in a different medium: Using an audio recorder and microphone ask seven strangers, “What are you afraid of?” Ask follow-up questions. Try to get a story with a beginning, middle, and end.
  2. Take a photograph of the interviewee.
  3. Choose the most interesting interview and edit the audio down to less than two minutes in length with a beginning, middle, and end.

Below are audio pieces and photos by TOW 0.2 participants Kate Montague, Tess Lawley, Luis Henrique, Ivy Tzur, and Meredith Johnson. Launch this gallery to look at and listen to their work:

The first beta test of our six-week workshop began November 2013 in the TOW 0.2 Facebook Group. Thanks to the Knight Prototype Fund for supporting the Transom Online Workshop.
