Welcome to Nowhere River



We recorded actor Marta Dusseldorp for this fantastic audiobook by Tassie author Meg Bignell

Penguin Audiobooks Australia needed somewhere Hobart-based to record Marta Dusseldorp’s narration. As luck would have it, we had just moved into our premises in Murray Street, so Welcome to Nowhere River became the first project for our brand new vocal booth.

Over the course of a couple of weeks, Marta and Meg worked with us in the studio to record a fantastic spoken word interpretation of Meg’s novel – almost twenty hours of raw recordings in all!

A quick-turnaround editing and master process whittled it down to a tidy twelve-and-a-half hours, which was submitted to the publisher and quickly approved.


The audiobook came out in early March 2021 to great acclaim. Mostly for Meg’s wonderful story and prose if we’re honest… but it sounded pretty good too!
