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:
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Johann Sebastian Bach
Never thought I’d do a sound design using Bach, Ministry AND Rilo Kiley all on one show. 🙂
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!
