Chance

Turn right and you'll meet the man or woman of your dreams. Turn left and you'll get hit by a car.

2014 / Sarah Boothroyd / Between the Ears, BBC Radio 3, UK

Turn right and you'll meet the man or woman of your dreams. Turn left and you'll get hit by a car.

Much of life is a matter of being in the right place at the right time, or the wrong place at the wrong time. In this impressionistic audio work, Canadian producer Sarah Boothroyd explores randomness, chance, and luck through the microcosm of the race track.

Chance was commissioned by Falling Tree Productions, for an audio version of the parlor game "consequences." What does that mean? And how did Sarah get those incredible hoofbeat sounds? Find out Behind the Scenes.

The photo of Sarah at the racetrack was snapped by Kevin Boothroyd, and the image of the horse is by Renata Domagalska.
