A Foley Full Community Radio Series
This series of radio shows, led by artist Marsha Rasmussen Knight, invites members from each host community of Chautauqua: The Interlake Trail to experiment with, build, and record foley sounds for their very own radio drama- animating local stories. Community members will work with scripts, voice characters, and build a soundtrack from household items to bring the stories to life. These radio dramas will premiere on community radio, and be shared here on TPM’s website and wherever you get your podcasts!
Individual Chautauqua projects will premiere between June and November. Keep in the loop with our newsletter so you don’t miss anything!
