A car breaks down.

I’m not really sure how to describe this…I’ve been saying “sound documentary” but it’s really more of a story than a documentary. It’s the story of my car breaking down on the highway a few weeks ago.

In any event, I’ve been working on this for the past week or so. I wrote all of the text and music (except the Gillian Welch song, as you’ll see). The sound effects are a mix between stuff I recorded in my house and tracks from the BBC Sound Effects Library.

It’s long – about 15 minutes – and the file is about 16 mb, so be patient!

Oh, and the song that I talk about at the end can be listened to in its entirety here.

Great audio short story!!!!

I would suggest that you make the small noises and background music a bit louder to emphasize the atmosphere.

This plus a few more should make a great album
