This has been my home for last few months- an editing cave at the ABC in Sydney.
I’ve been working on a 2 part radio documentary for ABC Radio National’s Earshot. It’s about a time from my childhood that’s always haunted me. In 1990 my school friend’s mother was murdered on their farm outside the small country town where I grew up. Over the last year, I’ve gone back to where it all happened, and have explored how the event affected the community and the families involved.
It’s been a long and involved process, so doing the final mix this week feels big. I’m working with Andrei Shabunov, one of the awesome sound engineers at the ABC.
This is perhaps the most exciting part of the process, witnessing the magic that brings all the sounds to life! Almost there…
The programs will be broadcast later this year.
