#SandmanXAudible friends. Here's where to find our wonderful cast on Twitter (where they have accounts)
(Apologies for messy screengrab to Mat, who is not and has never been a "Performer Grid".)
I'll be adding on-mic photos later on - when we had time to snap 'em.

I asked the team sound designing The Sandman Act II to talk about how they brought the words of @neilhimself to life for @audible_com @DCComics.
1) Toughest sound/scene to create?
2) Your most useful sound tools?
3) Favourite Sound effect or Scene?
Here's the result:
#WilfredoAcosta designed Eps 2-4, 6-8; i.e. the main Season Of Mists episodes. Wilf and I have made noises together since the BBC Radio Superman adventures with @DCComics in the early 90s.
Hardest Sound/Scene to create:
Chapter 7 Scene 9 especially memorable. A lot of work went into getting Azazel’s voice to sound all encompassing (using Brauer Motion, Doppler, Morphoder + Sub harmonics). The swirling ambiences were then manipulated to interact with the characters.

The DC Comics stuff I made for the BBC in the early 90s was released on cassette in the USA and our dearly beloved departed friend Phyllis Hume at @DCComics used to phone to tell me they were being sold in K-Mart, 7-11 etc, and I wondered if audio could be as big as film. /thread
It seemed to me then that comics and audio complemented each other uniquely and that each contributed a storytelling element that the other could only imply. If a project of sufficient scale was out there it might one day be possible to restore audio to its early 20thC status.
Douglas Adams confirmed that when he heard the DC stuff and asked me to pick up the reins on The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and bring it “home” to audio. We had a certain amount of success worldwide but the rights were bought by Disney who had no interest in promoting audio.
