This week we talk to Dianne Ballon, a Maine-based sound artist and audio educator who came down as a live guest to WMPG in Portland, Maine, where Radio Drama Revival originates. We talk about Dianne’s experience both as a participant and instructor at the National Audio Theater Festivals, held each June in West Plains, Missouri… Which means this thing is coming up soon! This June 21-27, to be exact.
Landing helicopters, strange sound effects, field recording, oh my! Learn about the great audio community that congregates in the Ozarks and hear why one sound artist makes the pilgrimage from Maine to the Midwest each summer.
