Masterclass: Down With Marimba: Making Music For Podcasts

As intrinsic as music is to audio storytelling, many podcasts and documentaries treat it as a second-class citizen, with injudicious use of library music or “tasteful wallpaper marimba” over everything. Music should reflect the piece, and the beats of the story - but just as importantly, the character of your show - and it doesn’t always have to be tasteful, restrained, or serious. Award-winning musician and podcaster, Martin Austwick shows how to translate abstract approaches and philosophies into real music and sound design to enhance individual pieces and create distinct audio identities for new podcasts and audio projects.
