Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The production has great acting, music, soundscaping, and technical values, along with an absorbing set of characters and an intriguing, engaging situation. We liked the way that the fantasy hook—the recordings recovered from charred wood—led into a human drama filled with emotion, conflict, and sacrifice. Great Northern Audio Theatre did a wonderful job with this title, and we all agree that you fully deserved the Audie Award—you’ve given other audio producers a high standard to aim for.” Atlanta Radio Theatre Company
“The story is excellent, the music is excellent, the audio quality is excellent, and so are the actors. This is a drama that goes in the permanent collection.” SFFaudio.com
“Best known for clever live sci-fi shows, the dynamic duo of Jerry Stearns and Brian Price show that they have more up their sleeves…The dialogue in this short drama is as sharp as laser etchings, and, among a strong ensemble cast, the performances of Robin Miles and Olivia DuFord stand out. Listeners will be treated to some uniquely sonic special effects, original tunes, and an imaginative story written by two of contemporary audio drama’s best.” AudioFile
“Fascinating story, with some terrific performances.” Stefan Rudnicki, award-winning narrator and actor

Wonderful multicast adventure with deep storytelling and great music

It's hard to find a multicast audiobook with such a rich story and varied, well-composed music. The jazz sounds like the real thing, and the acting is nuanced -- Miles makes Kit a character who really sticks with you. Price and Stearns nail the emotion that spans across the years in which the story takes place. Honestly gorgeous.

Brilliant and original storytelling!

A captivating mystery, deeply atmospheric sound design, haunting music and spot-on acting combine to create a compelling audio drama that stays with the listener well after the first hearing.

A fragment of sound is discovered, burned into the charred remains of a barn, and uncovered by an archeologist who has developed the means to "play back" the remnant. From this haunting audio, a narrative unfolds that is frightening and poignant. You have never heard a story quite like this.
