Today, February 3, 2022, is the release of the newest episode of Soundworlds, featuring Town is by the Sea. Soundworlds, a sonic theatre podcast, is conceived by the multi-talented Patrick Eakin Young, a Canadian-born director and creative storyteller based in London, specialising in interdisciplinary projects, particularly music and sound driven storytelling. Gathering musicians, writers, theatre-makers and sound artists, Patrick describes the sonic theatre pieces as “immersive sound worlds, intoxicating blends of music and storytelling, sound design, documentary and fiction.”
For Town is by the Sea, composer and violinist Anna Rheingans (of the folk duo The Rheinghans Sisters) creates a beautiful musical soundscape as the backdrop to the dramatization of the story.
