A Bit Late for Your Christmas Ghost Story, but...

Around Halloween, the BBC 3 series The Essay took a break from its program(me) of short audio musings on issues of art, philosophy, and similar topics for a short and creepy audio drama, the Stroma Sesions.

Five years ago, the Blackletter Quartet went to Stroma, an island off the coast of Scotland abandoned in 1962, to write and record an album. This is the story of what happened.

Each episode is about 15 minutes, and it helps to have fairly good speakers or headphones (sound is a bit part of the story). Transcripts do not seem to be available.

Episode 1
Episode 2
Episode 3
Episode 4
Episode 5

You can also access them via The Essay podcast feed on your favorite podcast app; they were broadcast during the week of 24-28 October 2016.

This was a fun listen. Well produced and acted. Really conjures up some haunting imagery.

Very nicely done. Starts off Blair Witch, then heads into Stone Tape territory.
