Earlier this year I worked as assistant sound designer to Pippa Murphy on City Of The Blind, a multi-media political thriller written and directed by David Leddy. Available from 1st August 2014 for smartphones and tablets, this groundbreaking drama presents its story through text, audio, video and photos.

It is an emotionally complex and intellectually provocative drama that follows U.N. investigator and whistleblower Cassie Al-Khatib caught in a web of surveillance, violence, and counter-intelligence. Throughout six thirty-minute-long chapters you access secret files to hear Cassie’s voicemail, intercept her emails, and watch CCTV. The piece is based on research into shocking real-life abuse committed by U.N. peacekeepers.

Available at www.DavidLeddy.com for £8.99

City Of The Blind has received favourable reviews: ***** from The Stage and British Theatre Guide and **** from The Scotsman
