Atlanta Radio Theatre Company Announces Innovative Fundraising Initiative Through Kickstarter.com
Atlanta, GA – September 28, 2010 – In an effort to improve the quality of their award-winning audio dramas, the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company takes advantage of the unique fundraising website Kickstarter.com with a project entitled Advancing Adventures in Sound.
The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company has been bringing quality audio drama to listeners around the world since 1984. Join us in our celebration of the imagination as we preserve this vital, vibrant art form. Together with dozens, if not hundreds, of other small-press audio publishers worldwide, ARTC seeks to draw you into the story so that a bit of your own vision might shine through and bridge the gap between the written page and the visual realm. Our unique, immersive, dramatic technique will feed your imagination and inspire your senses with realistic sound effects and stirring musical scores.
ARTC strives to merge age-old oral storytelling traditions with modern technology. The science of acoustics is still pretty much the same, but the equipment needed to produce and record sound properly has advanced. This Kickstarter project will provide the means for us to acquire new microphones and speakers, vastly improving the look, feel and sound of our live performances.
We will unveil the new equipment at our performance of "The Dancer in the Dark" by Thomas E. Fuller on April 30 and May 1, 2011, at the Academy Theatre in Avondale Estates, GA.
We've been doing this since 1984 and will continue to do so as long as there are writers to write, actors to act, techies to tech, musicians to muse...and listeners to listen. And we're going to do it better than we ever have before with your help.
There is Adventure in Sound!
One of dozens, if not hundreds, of small-press audio publishers worldwide, ARTC is one of the few to perform live as well as in the studio. With no sets, costumes or makeup to set up or apply, our pre-show time is spent transforming the space into an immersive sonic habitat suitable for the most creative imaginations. There is Adventure in Sound!
