Stay at home. Keep a distance. Isolate. The coming weeks and months are going to be rough.
With Californians under stay-at-home orders, we’re striving to tell stories about how people are coping with their isolation.
CapRadio’s Scott Rodd and Sally Schilling are launching a project called Isolated Together and want to hear — literally — what you’re doing to get through these times of solitude and uncertainty.
Are you cooking adventurous cuisine? Figuring out how to homeschool your kids? Exploring a new hobby? Caring for a loved one? These are just a few examples.
Here’s how you can contribute.
Using your smartphone, record up to a minute of an activity’s distinctive sounds. Then, record up to a minute of just you describing what you’re doing and why it’s meaningful in this moment. Make sure to say your name and where you’re from.
Tip: Don’t script it out — be organic!
Once you’re done, send it to Scott.Rodd@CapRadio.org.
You should be able to email the recordings directly from the app on your phone. And if you have any questions or need technical help, just reach out!
We’re excited to hear what you share, and we have lots of ideas on how to tell compelling stories using your sounds.
