Photos, programs, and sounds albums for the 2016 HEAR Now Festival
The 4th Annual HEAR Now: The Audio Fiction & Arts Festival was June 9 - 12, 2016
HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced performance, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more. This four-day Festival will offer a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art story-telling in theaters and other “listening” venues. The Festival will present audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation.
The 2016 HEAR Now Festival was a gathering place where the work of master storytellers was celebrated and shared.
Audio drama, audiobooks, recorded, and live story-telling -- sketches, poetry, spoken word -- alongside academic papers, juried competitions, and presentations on the physics of sound, as well as performance workshops, rounded out this intensive listening event for the 2016 Hear Now Festival.
