Sonics At Cowbird
(February 24, 2015)

Our friends at Cowbird asked if the Transom crew would like to do a collaborative story-telling project using the “Sonic IDs” as a frame. Yes. It has started now and you can visit Cowbird to find out the details: http://cowbird.com/seed/sonic/

In case you’ve never heard one, Sonics are brief interstitial vignettes that began appearing on our radio station (WCAI, for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, & Nantucket) the day we signed on. They air unexpectedly during every broadcast day; our way of providing local voices amid all the national fare. We have a bunch right here: Sonic Ids.

At Cowbird, we’re using the audio and short time frame as the construct; you simply match the vignettes with photos, or vice versa. Easy. Over at Transom we’re featuring tips on making these.

If you’ve already played around with short form audio, head over to Cowbird and post one. It’s fun. If we get a lot of good ones, they’ll be featured at Transom.
