How did the mammoths die? Where did the Indian Ocean come from?
The Indian Ocean was produced for the 2006 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story.
Delaney Hall joined the Third Coast Festival as an intern in June 2006. She now produces Re:sound, hosts our podcasts, and develops features for the Web site. Hall also helped launch the Sounding Point Radio Workshop at Street Level Youth Media and works on radio projects of her own. Before moving to Chicago, she lived in Austin, Texas, where she went to school, wrote for various newspapers, worked in a rare books library, and generally enjoyed the lone star state.
The Third Coast collaborated with cartoonist Matt Madden on 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story. The project, inspired by the French literary group Oulipo, asked any/everyone to produce a short audio piece that:
- began with some manifestation of, "To begin with, they never got along;"
- included a pre-recorded voice, rhythmic noise and exclamation
- lasted exactly 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
