What is it…
Tapes and Tales is a podcast creating stories for headphones. Writers collaborate with sound designers to create an immersive experience exploring the depths of audio storytelling. We are always looking for writers who can deliver emotive and visceral stories that we can then embellish with soundtrack and Foley. Points of reference should be somewhere between Chris Morris’ Blue Jam and The Truth from Radiotopia.
We don’t have a particular genre or theme for the podcast but we do love stories regarding existential oddities and the curiosity of the mind and heart.
What you need to do…
Writers should be able to record their own stories – we can assist with technical guidance on this – contributors have used free programs with laptops and mics, hand held recorders or free apps on their phones. Performance is more important than audio quality, although both are key for creating an engaging narrative. Once recorded send your audio file to us and we’ll assign a sound designer to do the rest. Each podcast show consists of three stories tenuously linked with a loose theme.
- Stories should be between 4 and 10 minutes in length
- Recorded in a quiet location with minimum background noise
- A wav audio file is our preferred format but high quality mp3s are great too – we can advise on this
This is an open ended call for submissions
