ROAM In The Ruins is an abstract science fiction audio drama about survivors in a post-apocalyptic world. It is produced by Atlanta-based arts organization Callosum Collective.1)

Fellow Survivors:

When the grid goes dark and the End Times finally come what will it sound like?

The 6 radioactively-charged contributors to this latest installment of the ROAM audiozine, who were hand-selected by curator Laura Relyea of Vouched Books, each tackle this question in a different way by harnessing the twin powers of Sound and the Written Word.

ROAM in the Ruins is a genetically mutated take on the traditional literary reading or audiobook. Part post-apocalyptic radio drama and part avant garde audio experiment, these aural dispatches from imaginary disaster zones explore what life might sound like during the apocalypse and how humanity might reconstitute civilization in the wake of such a catastrophe.

Those familiar with Orson Welles's War of the Worlds broadcast or Cormac McCarthy's The Road will know exactly what we're going for.
