Last June, photographer Tim Broekema and writer Jon Waterhouse spent four explosive days at the Bonnaroo music and art festival gathering material for audio slideshows that reveal what festival life is like for the thousands of Bonnoroovians every year. When Neal Cohen of Superfly Presents asked Soundslides to partner with Bonnaroo, he said he wanted a software that was super easy to use and quick and cost efficient to get online.

Part 2 of Broekema's post-festival reflections contains tips on how to prepare for such a tightly scheduled, high-octane assignment. (Here's Part 1)

Strong narrative in audio recordings

NY Times - Audio Slideshow

The audio slideshow recording can be as powerful as jazz

Bonnaroo starts tomorrow, June 13, and we're excited to have one of our best Soundslides experts on the ground, photographer and Western Kentucky University professor Tim Broekema, along with writer/producer Jon Waterhouse, to capture the atmosphere of this wild festival with audio slideshows. (We'll post them here!)

As he was packing up to head out this week, Tim riffed a little for us on why the audio slideshow works so well for Bonnaroo, and what he's facing as he goes into the heady (and fun) action of the next four days in Manchester, Tennessee.

The scoop...
Photographer and writer Kevin Rushby creates audio slideshows for the British newspaper and website The Guardian. He has also published several provoking books.

In "Children of Kali," he looks into "the dark and mysterious world of Indian crime, past and present."

Recently we caught up with Rushby for some key comments about making audio slideshows ... Read the full story
