Experimenting soundscapes

I have just recorded an audio version of my flash fiction, Oratorio for a Wreck. Inspired by the work of Dirk Maggs who directed and crafted the sound of the BBC radio production of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere as well as Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, I tried experimenting with multilevel soundscapes. I have neither his equipment nor his talent or vast experience, but it was fun and I am pleased with the result.

Many thanks to my son, Iannis, for his advice about the sound.

Here is my reading of the Prologue of The Starless Square, book 3 of The Storyteller’s Quest. It is this extract that I read on the boat travelling to Morges during the GWG Summer Cruise.

If you want to read the prologue yourself, here is the link. To find out more about The Starless Square including where to buy a copy, click here. And for details of all Alan Mccluskey’s books, see here.
