Sound and Imagination

TWC Atmospherics is the name given to the audio production project started in 2016, but whose genesis lay in the success of the 2015 Spring Production ‘Radio Days’, which took the radio, or audio play concept to a live stage. The format was quickly recognised as a means of releasing our collective creativity from the bounds of limiting little things like budget and construction.
