Piece Comment

Review of Sawlady

Tight and thoughtful production give this piece all of the elements of really great radio. It tells a story, it gives the listener information and finally, we actually HEAR it all come together. I like radio that uses ambient sound as part of the actual story, rather then just as a generic background. I love when she describes how she creates the different pitches at the exact moment we hear them. Its interesting how much a regular carpenter saw sounds like a theremin.
