Story

Tripura and Om took temporary vows of silence when they first met almost 20 years ago. Joan Schuman produced this sound portrait of their experience by weaving together their vocal memories with an ambient narrative of chalk scratching on slate.

Producer

Joan Schuman's audiophilia whispers into the radio’s ear. Documentaries and poetic narratives have aired in the States, Canada, Europe and Australia in festivals, online and on CD compilations. Though she's a child of the East Coast (Philadelphia) and an adult of the West (Northern and Central California, the U.S. Southwest), Schuman now lives at the coast in Santa Cruz, California, and, since 2004, teaches online audio/radio production and theory classes in the Media Studies department at The New School in New York.
