Jim wrote about this story before. When I read it, I thought about all the possibilities for sounds effects, and how those and the dialogue could carry the whole tale. I don’t know if I’ll have the time, but it would be cool to produce this for ds106radio. I like the various ideas the class came up with. Many people thought of using music to set the mood. It’s a great idea, but I think it would be tricky to find just the right open-source music, and if you needed more than one piece, then you would have to find pieces that worked together. So I would probably go minimal on the music. Here’s my two cents on imagining the tales for audio:
Just as a side note, there’s an interesting visual detail that reoccurs throughout the story. We see both the doctor’s and the patient’s faces lit so that they have that two-faced appearance, hinting at how that each of them has a monstrous side. It’s one of those nice little details that shows up in these stories.
