The term digital sound narratives refers to storytelling experiences that use audio as the primary medium to convey a story. It involves the use of digital technology and techniques to create immersive audio narratives that can be experienced across various platforms and devices, such as interactive media, virtual reality, augmented reality, or audio-only formats.
In digital sound narratives, audio plays a central role in shaping narrative structure, atmosphere, and emotional impact. These narratives often take advantage of spatial audio techniques and binaural audio processing to create a sense of presence and spatial immersion. By employing advanced audio technologies such as ambisonics or object-based audio, digital sound narratives can create a more immersive and realistic listening and interactive experience.
Digital sound narratives can take various forms, including interactive audio dramas, audio books, podcast dramas, location-based audio experiences, or virtual reality storytelling.
