Trying to Follow DS106 Radio
I listened to DS106 Radio on Thursday September 28th. It was an interesting experience. For that session, they played the audio for a Batman story. The audio itself was very good, clear with good layering and sound movement from the left to the right. The characters had very distinct voice for the most part, but that was were I also got lost. There were many characters because it followed a story line of Batman trying to recapture his past foes. While I do know a little about Batman, I have not read any comic books for it and have only seen a few shows and movies. This made it difficult to follow along as they kept introducing more and more characters with a back story that I wasn’t familiar with. However, I still appreciate the work that went into making it. They were able to make distinct character voices that I could follow along with without a visual. I also liked how they added distance making sounds get louder/softer or move from left to right. Live tweeting was also interesting because I saw people commenting on certain sounds that I hadn’t noticed at first and it allowed me to hear things I may not have otherwise heard.
