‘Alphabet’ at the HEAR Now Festival

I was delighted to learn that Leslie McMurtry’s sensitive, well-researched audio fiction piece Alphabet has been awarded gold tier status at the HEAR Now festival of audio fiction and arts in Kansas City.

As well as scoring it, I worked closely with Leslie on the production of this historical piece, told from the point of view of a woman, one of the early settlers of America, observing the lead-up to independence as it intrudes on her personal journey. It was a great project to be on, quiet, atmospheric, understated, and beautifully read (having put some research in to the accent) by Sarah Golding.

Here is a link to the piece itself:
