“The king is dead” is an announcement of a monarch who has just died. “Long live the king!” refers to the heir who immediately succeeds to a throne upon the death of the preceding monarch. This applies to most media these days as well, but especially radio, publishing and film. While traditional radio doesn’t command the audiences it used to, the internet, podcasts and mp3 players have revolutionized the way people listen.
There are so many opportunities and ways to tell stories with sound and Darin seeks them out. On this page, From Killing to Tallying: The Annual Christmas Bird Count and The Original Playstation: Victoria Nature School are mini-documentaries that use natural sound and interviews to take the listener inside. In the Definitely Not the Opera piece, Darin tells a story about naive kindness. The Occupy Victoria story is a streeter that mixes interviews with sound from the protest.
But wait! There’s more. You could also visit We Like to Eat!, Darin’s page containing stories on food.
The Art of the Arts page has stories and interviews with the people behind artistic endeavours in Victoria.
Since 2009, Darin has interviewed politicians, journalists, artists, directors, teachers and more to produce stories that interest him and his producers. His sound and interviews have appeared on local, regional and national CBC Radio as well as campus and community radio.
