An audio book is a recording of a text simply being read. A reading of the complete text is noted as "unabridged," while readings of a reduced version are labeled as "abridged." Spoken word books have been around since the 1930s and became popular in the eighties. The term "talking book" was coined during the 1930s when "book for the blind" programs gained in popularity.
Audio drama (sometimes called radio or audio theater) is a dramatized, purely acoustic performance, broadcast on the radio or published on CDs or MP3s. With no visual component whatsoever, radio drama depends on dialogue, music and sound effects to help the listener imagine the characters and story. Listening Breakthrough!
The newest genre in audio listening is Active Listening Audio Adventures. Active Listening Audio Adventures are audio dramas with fast-moving stories designed to keep the listener captivated by the story. Quickly paced and Plot-rich use of powerful sound effects makes this new listening format truly unique. Parents love it because it truly "captures" the imagination of children. Some describe it as 3-D sound effects.
At Heirloom Audio Productions, we are especially passionate about bringing real history to life. This inevitably means a bit of detective work as we try to figure out what actually happened in the story we're attempting to tell.
Our task is further complicated by the fact that so much of what passes for any type of history today has been "sanitized" by secularists and is often beyond the point of historical recognition.
That said, our passion and love of history takes us to some amazing places and allows us to do some pretty unusual things as we sort out the details of a sometimes murky past.
Frankly, this is a lot of fun. But it's also serious business and we don't take what God has done for us in the past - our history - for granted. This is no small thing!
In fact, we feel that God requires us to truly go the extra mile and take our audio dramas to a new level of excellence. Our mission, simply stated… is to engage our listener's imagination by taking them back in time and immersing them in the story.
To accomplish this mission, we have traveled to the actual locations where these events took place. We have stood above Plymouth where Sir Francis Drake first sighted the Spanish Armada. We have walked on the same ground where William Wallace swung his famous claymore and conquered his enemies. Now, from the solemn battlefields of Virginia, we bring you the action and essence leading up to the final days of the Civil War. We sincerely hope you enjoy the fruit of these efforts! Your support means more than you know. Keep living the adventure!
