Shooting Clouds

These are from a play I worked on at the Union Theatre called Shooting Clouds. The idea here was to sonically place the play within the context of late 1950s America. I’ve only included a few here but there was one of these short radio collages at the start of every act.

The timeline of the play spans an eighteen-month period and the sound clips reflect that, with news clips and number one songs linked to the specific date of each scene. Also, I tried to reflect the mood of each scene through my choice of material. A long long time spent here trawling through old radio archives and researching 1950s music.
