Audio Storytelling

When I think of the best stories, I think of the ones that make you feel like your there. They engage each of your senses. A person is more connected to a story when you perceive it in multiple ways. When multiple senses are stimulated, people will not only relate to your account but be more easily moved by it. When a story is told, the purpose is to make an impact or for people to remember it. But to trigger this kind of response, you can’t merely concentrate on visually presenting the events, characters, and setting features; you have to form a more profound connection. Sound is crucial because it can tell us about spirit, time, and atmosphere. It’s important because it tells us and influences us in ways visuals can’t, and because specific sequences of sound and visuals can provoke a response that neither can do solo. It’s also important because it can help to determine the way we perceive an environment through our other senses. The use of sound is a unique mode of storytelling, and it is widely known for its mood-altering characteristics, the ability to affect behavior, and perception of events. There are strong bonds within sound, emotion, and memory, and our own backgrounds and choices define the nature and magnitude of emotional response we have to various sounds.
