Music: A Dream Play

Director Chris Holcom and I (as sound designer) started by swapping out inspirado CDs, music that made us think of the show in the general. I took his first, listened to it, then hit him with my reponse CDs.

Somewhere in the middle is where we ended up, and that’s the beautiful thing about collaboration. I enjoy doing sound, and this was no exception (if you don’t count the 9 hour day I pulled yesterday simply fixing my computer so I could do the work …)

Here is a list of representative artists used somewhere, somehow in the show:

Thievery Corporation
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Angelo Badalamenti
Brian Eno
David Bowie
Duke Ellington
Johann Sebastian Bach
Massive Attack
Silversun Pickups
Smashing Pumpkins
Rilo Kiley
The 6ths
Mission UK
Thom Yorke

Never thought I’d do a sound design using Bach, Ministry AND Rilo Kiley all on one show. πŸ™‚

Hope you can make it out to see the show, it’s going to be a treat! Also, clocking in under an hour an a half right now – you’ll have plenty of time to do other things!
