Collective Slipgate Nine Studio Resources, ERH, The Free Sound Project, Nine Inch Nails (remixed multi-track effects and drone derivatives), selections from the Public Domain & Free Sound Internet Resources.


Nine Inch Nails, Kevin MacLeod, ERH 50 Foot Wave, and countless selections from Public Domain Internet Resources (including MusOpen and the Internet Archive).


The “Edict Zero – FIS – Theme” tracks and all their derivative mixes–which are interwoven through each episode–are remixes of ’26 Ghosts III’, from the CC-licensed Ghosts I-IV by Nine Inch Nails. Also, many of the sound effects and special ambiences (i.e. scene headers) heard in Edict Zero – FIS are derived from samples from the hundreds of Nine Inch Nails multitracks made available at remix.nin.com.

Front and center attribution is also owed to ERH and Kevin MacLeod as main composers of the Edict Zero soundscape. The contributions from their work are not minor.

Additional attribution:

“Power + Light”, by 50 Foot Wave.

“16 Ghosts II”, from Ghosts I-IV by Nine Inch Nails.

“Discipline” (Remix), from The Slip, by Nine Inch Nails.

  1. Just started listening to this… It’s fantastic!

    • Thanks, and you have a marvelous show as well!

      • Thank you very much. I actually feel I can learn a lot from you guys 🙂 Especially when it comes to mixing… Your mixes are very strong. I particularly enjoy the sense of movement you manage to bring to the scenes… That’s very hard to do when you only have sound to work with. Scriptwise, it’s also very cool how you manage to avoid too much “self-narration” — another challenge. Finally, the atmosphere you conjure up really works. I believe atmosphere is one of the key components of audio drama and this show has it in spades.

  2. I certainly hope so, given all the work it requires. I do all the mixing myself and it can be quite the chore. I’m always experimenting (with the occasional bad choice I learn from) and finding new ways to do things. I may be unhealthily obsessed with the soundscapes to the point where I do more than I really need to (adding layers of sound which for 95% listeners will only exist at the subconscious level), but hey.

    As for avoiding “narration”, yes, this was particularly challenging for me, considering I spent my life previous to audio production … writing novels (many of them literary with a lot more narration than there was dialogue…)

    I think I’m still adjusting to my new existence, but it seems to be working well.

    • Glad to have you as a listener! I’ll do my best not to disappoint with the “more”. Thanks for listening and the comment too. Cheers.

  5. What a great show! You people really have talent! So much so,
    I can’t think of any other show comparable. Your voices, the intelligent writing, the sound manipulation, the story, the characters …you’ve got it all.
    I’ve always wanted to use the word ‘ineffable’ and finally I have the opportunity …what you folks are producing is not only ineffable in its creation, it delivers ineffable joy too.
    I’m not the word smith Jack K is… so, thank goodness, I found that big word, ineffable. It can do the heavy lifting of complimenting you all, so I can get back to listening!
    Please people, do yourselves a favor and check this ineffable podcast out.

    Easily the most under-appreciated audio drama going. The writing is outstanding both in its prose and narrative creativity. The acting is far above average for podcasts as well, which is especially impressive given that so many characters are voiced by a single person. Great work heading up such an epic project and thanks for sharing your many talents.
