I got a call from an arts unit editor at radio 4 last week who set a very interesting challenge. He is making a programme about the use of sound FX in theater. Particularly a sound cue from Chekhov’s play The Cherry Orchard:

“the sound of a breaking string which dies away sadly”.

The challenge is of course to try and make this sound. The nice part is that I’ll have time to make and document various approaches which will hopefully make an interesting segment for the show.

All being well it’ll air at the end of January next year, I’ll remind you closer to the time…..

Twaangggggg :-(
