ADAM - Justin Price
SUIT / ASTRONAUT - Sarah Golding
Please be warned this audio horror deals with facing death, isolation, panic, and suffocating spaces.
Is SUIT even real?
Please find links to finding and contacting Justin below, and....employ him doo!
Massive thanks also to John Bartmann for his wonderful music for all of these pieces - you can find his works here, and also become a Patreon for his works here, And here is a link to his fabulous podcast with interviews with other amazing musicians working in audio drama - How I Make Music!
All sounds were either made by Sarah, from her growing libraries or found from freesound.org on Creative Commons 0 licenses.
I wrote these pieces bespoke for the students to showcase their wares. I truly hope you enjoy dipping in, and, feel free to tweet out your fave performances or let me know on @quirkyvoices or email me on email@example.com. I would LOVE to hear from you - and if you feel so inclined - leave a review for these Groovy AF students!
I would love your support to help make more of these groovy workshops - and Quirky Voices VA courses. If you are an audio creative and would like to sponsor a space on a future course for a budding VA of colour, or from a marginalised community, please email and let me know - and thank you! I also try to help by varying the price structure for certain students depending on circumstance, and also offer a sponsored Quirky place FOR FREEEE!
