One of the world’s greatest creative audio makers is the guest of honour at a unique event being held at the University of South Wales’ Atrium campus next week.
Alan Hall, from Falling Tree Productions, is joining forces with BBC audio feature makers and university staff and students to share some of the sounds which have captivated them during the last twelve months.
The Eat My Radio event is in its second year, and is aimed at anyone who is interested in sound. Attendees will be asked to consider the sounds that set their heart racing – from a woodfire crackling, the roar of 76,000 people cheering Wales, a baby’s soft breathing as it sleeps.
University of South Wales radio lecturer and BBC producer Lyndon Jones, has organised the event.
“Last year’s event was packed out, and this year’s will be even better – a night of fascinating, mesmerising, sensual sound,” he said.
“There’ll be clips from prize-winning radio programmes including this year’s Prix Italia winner, (conveniently, made in Cardiff!), internet broadcasts, audio art, music, and students’ work too. For anyone interested in how sound can become one of the most powerful human experiences, it’s an unmissable evening.”
The event takes place next Wednesday, December 11, in the Zen Room of the Atrium building in Cardiff at 6:30pm.
