I must say, I have never really listened to all that many radio shows of this sort. However, the sound effects really tied me into the narrative of what might as well of been a documentary. The “what if” scenario of the piece felt so real in a way that I feel like film could not convey. I feel that way because in film, or most visual media, it is so easy to get caught up in the visual spectacle (or lack there of) so much so that it can detract from the work itself. This piece kept me constantly engaged as there were absolutely no moments of downtime. Any period of what would be a gap between speech is occupied by some sort of sound effect not only bringing about this lack of downtime leaving the listener constantly engaged, but creating a great deal of depth in the story they are trying to tell to us.
