Painting Pictures with Sound: Behind the Music of The Bivalve Trail
Show Notes

Podcast writer and narrator Lexi Hubb chats with Bill Troxler; composer, performer, and sound designer for The Bivalve Trail to discuss the meticulous scholarship and creativity that went into engineering the sounds that accompanied the storytelling of Thomas Downing. Soundscapes were created to illustrate to the listener where Thomas Downing is and  also the environmental sounds around him.  Music was selected to reflect the time period and create dramatic effect. The idea for this interview derived from wanting to bring listeners into understanding the painstaking effort that went into designing the sounds that underscored the story of Thomas Downing.

Researched, written, and told by Lexi Hubb. Podcast artwork by Angela Heady. Recording and post-production by Longtayle Studios. Music by Bill Troxler.
