The Miller Aud-cast | June 01, 2021

Hello and welcome to Miller Aud-cast, Episode 21. In this episode, we feature a finalist for the 2021 Miller Audio Prize in Humor, “The Big Sneeze.”

“The Big Sneeze” is a playful collaboration between two Adelaide artists, writer Suzanne Verrall and sound artist and musician Dani Burbrook.

Suzanne wrote the 200 words of “The Big Sneeze” in February 2018. In March of the same year Dani created this recording where she narrates the story, plays a digital double bass, percussion on a pizza box and the “mouth” trumpet – which is actually just her voice. It was published by Meow Meow Pow Pow on their website in early June 2018 and then later featured on Radio Adelaide in an interview with Dani and Suzanne discussing their exhibition “Heart Pieces” which was showing at the Prospect Gallery at the time.

Stay tuned for Miller Aud-cast #22, coming soon. We hope you’ve been enjoying the Aud-cast, and remember: if they’ve inspired you to record your own creative work, whether in poetry, prose, humor, or audio documentary, submissions are open now for the 2021 Miller Audio Prize. The deadline for this year’s contest is June 15.
