From Ark to Microchip

The provocative “From Ark to Microchip” mixes commentary, dramatic re-enactment, original music, historic voices, audio art and sound effects in a pan-historical, pan-cultural milieu. Programs in The From Ark to Microchip series have received a Golden Reel Award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, an Audio Works Special Selection, a Peabody Award (as part of Lost & Found Sounds) and funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
