HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for fans, performers and producers of contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced performance, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more.

This four-day Festival offers a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art story-telling in theaters and other “listening” venues. HEAR Now presents audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation.

The 2017 HEAR Now Festival will again be a gathering place where the work of master storytellers is celebrated and shared.

Audio drama, audiobooks, recorded, and live story-telling -- sketches, poetry, spoken word -- alongside academic papers, juried competitions, and presentations on the physics of sound, as well as performance workshops, will round out this intensive listening event for the 2017 Hear Now Festival.

The following schedule is still ’under construction’ and subject to updates prior to June 6, 2017.

Out of Body, Out of Mind is the first episode in a new storytelling series, Ears Hear Now, by Larry the O: author, composer, musical performer, narrator, sound designer, audio engineer,
which features stories told with a cinematic approach, in which sound design and music play roles equal to the narration itself. Out of Body is actually an entirely true story which occurred exactly as it is told.

Larry the O will share the the out-of-body experience he had while performing.
