The Incident by Larry the O (Fictional, CA) The Incident, is a true story in nine parts. It is the second episode of the storytelling-meets-sound-art series Ears Hear Now (EHN), which tells stories in a different way. While many other storytelling relies exclusively on narration and dialogue to tell a story, using music to frame it and sound effects to illustrate it, EHN’s approach is more akin to film or video game sound, where music and sound design go beyond those roles to be active storytelling partners. The Incident significantly develops techniques pioneered in the first EHN episode, Out of Body, Out of Mind, which was a Platinum Selection at the 2017 HEAR Now Festival. The story told in The Incident concerns a near-fatal car crash that befell the narrator (Larry) and his wife without their ever being aware it had occurred until they awoke in the Emergency Room.Larry the O will share his use of sound design elements.Hump Day by Young Park and Victor Liu (Bloomington, ID)Ken Thompson went to sleep last Tuesday and woke up Thursday morning with a screaming migraine.
