It might look like a beautiful piece of outdoor sculpture, but hidden inside its metallic sides is a cushy sound proof recording booth where we’ll be recording your stories in comfort – and quiet. Join us as The Cube travels around the Hudson Valley collecting your stories.

Assembling the Cube 



What does a day with The Cube look like?

Sound and Story assembles The Cube on location usually the day before your event. We provide a trained interviewer to record the interviews with professional equipment. Interviews are booked every hour and last about 40 minutes. Generally, we conduct about six interviews a day. The host organization is responsible for scheduling the interviews.


Sound and Story gives each participant a flash drive with an mp3 file of their interview to take home with them.  The sponsoring organization receives a preservation master.wav and mp3 file of all the interviews, a photo of each interviewee and a copy of the release forms. We also advise you on preserving your recordings and creative ways to make them available to the public.

How much does it cost?

A Cube visit costs approximately $2,500 for the first day and $1,000 for each additional day of interviews. Costs vary according to travel distance, so please contact us for an estimate.
