Think of Hare Salon as a creative warren* for narrative audio production, sound design and mixing. It’s where the audible word tells a story.
war·ren | ˈwôrən,ˈwärən
- A network of interconnecting rabbit burrows.
late Middle English: from an Anglo-Norman French and Old Northern French variant of Old French garenne ‘game park’, of Gaulish origin.
Whereas a "rabbit hole" can be seen as a temptation to wander down blind alleys, the more apt "warren" invites a creative partnership where ideas can be explored freely and constructively.
