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.
Questions:
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.

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.
