Welcome to 'PEREDATCHIK' - the Russian word for 'transmission unit' and, in this particular case, an online home for various works by me, Charles Maynes, an American producer / journalist based in Moscow, Russia.
I work primarily in SOUND. My radio reporting appears regularly on PRI's 'The World'
, CBC (Canada), ORF (Austria), and Deutsche-Welle (Germany), among others. I also produce audio features and documentaries, and have occasionally done sound design and music scoring for art exhibitions.
I work in other media as well. You'll find some examples of my photography and/or videos.
In the past, I've worked extensively as a trainer and digital consultant to independent media in Russia and other countries of the CIS, primarily with friends at the Foundation for Independent Radio Broadcasting (FNR) and an outfit that used to be called Eurasia-Media.
Once upon a time, I was lucky enough to be the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and a Third Coast
International Audio Festival’s Directors’ Choice award.
Listen, look, and, if you like, feel free to contact me at charlesmaynes (at) gmail com. I'm usually game for collaborating on projects.
