SONIC THEATRE PODCAST



All You Need Is To Listen.


Soundworlds is not just a podcast. It’s an audio stage for diverse stories told in extraordinary ways. It’s a place for an exciting new form of audio drama that we call sonic theatre.

Created by musicians, writers, theatre-makers and sound artists, sonic theatre pieces are more than radio plays. They’re immersive sound worlds, intoxicating blends of music and storytelling, sound design, documentary and fiction.

Our inaugural season of work includes commissions from adventurous artists from the world of independent music, alongside some of the most innovative recent music theatre productions, reimagined as audio performances.

WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT LOVE

Patrick Eakin Young / Matt Huxley / Alex Groves,
after Raymond Carver



A series of sonic theatre miniatures, inspired by the suffocating interiors and suburban tableaux of Raymond Carver’s iconic 1981 short story collection.







One of the great minimalists of the genre, Carver’s vignettes of domestic American life conceal suppressed passions, silent fears and obsessive fantasies.

Using an extended palette of audio storytelling techniques, from the naturalistic to the surrealist, this four-part collaboration between director Patrick Eakin Young and composers Alex Groves and Matt Huxley holds a microphone between the lines of Carver’s concise prose to amplify what’s left unsaid.

A Soundworlds production, supported the Canada Council Digital Originals initiative
