The Miller Aud-cast | May 25, 2021

Hello and welcome to Miller Aud-cast, Episode 20. In this episode, we feature “Echo Bridge,” a sound poem from Jane P. Perry, a finalist for the 2021 Miller Audio Prize. Perry is an ethnographer. She uses voices and ephemera to tell stories as an author and sound artist. Quoting from Storytelling In Sound, her growing collection of acoustic poems, Jane says, “I believe the auditory sense provides a rich channel for opening the imagination because what is heard can be open to interpretation. The act of interpreting becomes a healthy experience of storytelling for the listener.”

Thanks for being here with us for Miller Aud-cast #20. Much gratitude to Jane P. Perry for sharing her work with us, and letting us give it to the internet: it is an honor.
