Podcasts and audio features for organisations

Tickertape podcasts and audio features are an engaging means of showcasing your work and the people involved to your followers, clients, customers, sales teams and funders. See below for examples of our work. You’ll find more on the blog.

Podcasts for LUSH cosmetics

This is the first in a series of ‘Meet the Maker’ podcasts that we are producing for LUSH cosmetics, in collaboration with Cathy Haynes. It is available to listen to on the LUSH player.

The aim of the series is to give a sensory rich insight into the craft of making. Here, we follow Master Paper Maker Gary Fuller at Frogmore Mill as he produces a new kind of packaging paper using banana fibre. When the machines were rolling the Mill was incredibly noisy! The challenge for us was both to capture Gary’s voice as cleanly as possibly, and to record and mix in the mechanical sounds so as to give the listener the feeling of being there inside the Mill as the paper was being made.

London A to G

What does London sound like? Does it have a pitch? How much is thought through and how much is just sonic waste?

We produced this 4 minute audio piece for Dotmaker Tours, to promote their sound-themed guided walk, The London Ear. It’s based on sounds we recorded around London, arranged in order of their pitch, from A up to G. There’s more information about the ideas behind the piece on our blog here.

The piece was featured on BBC Radio Ulster’s Soundscapes programme in June. It has also been played at the 2019 HearSay International Audio Arts Festival and on Resonance FM.

Podcasts documenting Paws and Padlocks

We produced a series of ten podcasts about a newly commissioned children’s opera by composer Kate Whitley and writer Sabrina Mahfouz. The podcasts follow the production of the opera Paws & Padlocks, from writing and fundraising through to rehearsals and the final performance. You can listen to all ten podcasts in the series on Soundcloud

Paws & Padlocks was commissioned by Blackheath Halls with support from the Arts Council England and a number of other charitable trusts. It premiered at the Blackheath Halls in April 2017. You’ll find more information on the Blackheath Halls website
