Within The Wires

Ok. I’m a week late posting this, but please forgive the delay, as I’ve been plunged into the existential darkness that is a post-brexit Britain, and it’s not been pretty.

More on that in a moment, but first this:

“Within the Wires. A new serial fiction podcast from the team behind Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn’t Dead.Set within an alternate reality, “Within the Wires” tells stories in the guise of instructional audio programs.

 Season One, “Relaxation Cassettes,“ is a 10 part scripted fiction podcast that takes the form of an audio course on full body relaxation issued by The Institute to you, (the listener) a nameless medical inmate. 

Who is this narrator? Is she relaying something more than just relaxation techniques, and is she to be trusted? 

And are there subliminal messages hidden within the music? 

As listeners move through the relaxation curriculum a deeper and more personal story unravels. Every other Tuesday starting June 21, 2016.”

I’m the musical leg of the Within the Wires trio, and I get to make soothing and hypnotic pieces to underscore your breathing work, and your guided meditations.

I’m prone to a little anxiety myself, so I’m genuinely trying to make each piece of music something that draws you in, slows your heart rate, and takes you to a special place in your mind where you are ready for whatever comes next.

I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with Jeffrey Cranor again, as we’ve shared many adventures on the road with Night Vale, and I’m delighted to have met the very wonderful Janina Matthewson and converted her into a real life friend and not just an avatar.

Being on the fringes of the Night Vale world as the weather has been really exciting for me, and I know how loyal and creative the fandom is, so I’m very excited to see how you all receive what Janina and Jeffrey have written.

Thanks for listening!
