Hoekjes van Geluk

A story through sound

Het Nationale Hoorspel (The National Radio Play) was a special initiative at the beginning of the Corona crisis. Started by Stephan Alspeer, more than one hundred creators from various creative industries joined together to launch a new radio play platform with the story "Hoekjes van Geluk" ("Happiness is Just Around the Corner") based on Maryam Hassouni's children's book.

Known actors such as Najib Amhali, Victoria Koblenko and Howard Komproe joined the crew, as well as many other creative forces.

SonicPicnic was asked to take care of the sound design for the radio play, which we did, of course, with great pleasure and enthusiasm.
We designed the sounds of roller skates waving over pink grass fields, a candyfloss factory and growing wings to name a few!

Together with the music of Berend Dubbe (Shiverville) and the audio post production and direction by Ad van Dongen (Big Orange), it became a treat for the ear that hopefully will be a start for many more stories to follow .

The initiative also attracted a lot of media attention; there were articles written by het AD and Adformatie and it was heard on NPO Radio 4.

The radio play is also available on Spotify and on the site of The National Radio Play.
