"60 second audio-visual haikus"

is how Big Shed's Shea Shackleford describes these short slide shows produced at "Show + Tell: Multimedia Cross Training

Center for Documentary Studies at Duke"

From the site:

"This was the first multimedia institute from Big Shed and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. 18 media makers—photographers, writers, radio producers, editors, publishers and others—learned new skills in either audio or photography and composed their first original multimedia content."

Everyone loves StoryCorps

Latest tracks by Together Liberia

Trailers… portable booths… studios that don't look typical for public radio… and fantastic radio. StoryCorps is such a treasure that the recordings get sent to the Library of Congress. The idea has travelled not just across the US but across the world – the BBC  says they want a British version, and the Together Liberia project brings us this selection.

What Phish Sounds Like To People Who Don't Like Phish

I am going to go ahead and say this qualifies as audio documentary. Hilarious and also brilliant in the vein of Revolution #9 or Zappa.


Less Swedish, Please!

SR c is an outlet for experimental and creative radio, nestled in the heart of Sweden's public radio broadcaster, which is called Swedish Radio. The main site has an enormous amount of content, but also a link in the top left that asks for "Less Swedish, please!", which opens this new page – other languages, including English, Non-verbal, and, of course, Sound Carpets. There's much to enjoy here. Dive in. 


AD Hearts AF

After three years of linking in the wilderness, has company! We would like to offer a full-throated endorsement to the new audio curating site, Audiofiles. In case you haven't seen it (or read about it), Audiofiles is similar in concept to in that it is an independant site that curates links to radio and audio pieces available free online (you'll even see a number of things AD has featured on there). It doesn't feature any original content like AD and perhaps tends more toward main-stream American public radio ala NPR. Audiofiles, however, adds crowd-sourcing via Twitter integration so that the curating spigot is turned to 11. It also allows users to save links by signing in with Twitter. It's a cool twist on the idea of audio links curating and we hope everyone will check it out!


Interactive Documentary: Pine Point

From the Canadian National Film Board and included on the Association of Independants in Radio's (AIR) list of top transmedia projects of 2011, Pine Point is hard to catagorize -- video, photos, sound, text, both temopral and not... It is interactive documentary.
