Monterey Bay Chronicles
A collaboration with Krista Almanzan and KAZU FM, in Seaside.
Inspired by “City Symphonies,” 1920s-30s silent documentaries that depicted life in cities from Berlin to Sao Paolo, we set out to create a 24-hour audio portrait of the the Monterey Bay area. We wanted to explore the lives of people in most every small town there, at every hour of the day. The segments are narrated by the people in them, and take us everywhere from a security guard’s nighttime rounds at the aquarium to a Bible Study group at the local jail.
Here’s the version that aired on KAZU, with intro/outro, and set-ups explaining a few segments.
For those of you who wan a a little more mystery, here’s the (shorter) unadulterated version!
