Episode notes

Hello Pathfinders! We're back this week with another episode all about music and sound in storytelling. Listen now to find out why silent films never were so silent, how chickens and walnuts made you reel back in your seat and how layering every technique in the book is what leads to you finding an escape when you sit down to watch your favourite film.

Thank you for listening to Pathfinder. You can find out the video version and more information about this show at
