About This Show
Long-form documentary, sound experimentation, and musings on the stuff of life; The White Whale is a podcast offering visions behind the curtain of existence and why it's the process that's ultimately the story. Brought to you by CyNar Pictures; a multimedia lab experimenting with image and sound that also releases music via American Residue Records. We try to do things as they are not supposed to be done.

Sounds Of La La Land
Part of this year's more diversified Academy Award nominations, Ai-Ling Lee and Mildred Iatrou Morgan have been nominated for Best Sound Editing for La LA Land; becoming the first all-female team nominated in the category (Ai-Ling is also nominated for Best Sound Mixing along with Andy Nelson and Steve A. Morrow). As sound supervisors and designers on the project, their job was to lead the teams that brought every sound you hear. With a heavy emphasis on using production sound versus pre-recorded mixes of music; the performances in the film often feel more organic and real, not so decentered from the overall sound of the narrative as is customary with the genre. This approach informs every step of the audio process; a fine balance of imaginary realism, with key components of audio that connect to the makeup of our everyday living.
