i’m sound designing a play for theatre passe muraille right now, which happens to be written by (and stars) my sister pamela. the sound design is quite complex, by which i mean building the running cues for the sound involves many abrupt cuts and changes of audio state, let alone making the actual audio. and in rehearsal today i got to thinking about how the internal pulses and arc of the sound itself can be magnified by movement and text, how it can become stronger even though it serves and is played in tandem with other elements.
it’s a beautiful dance. i hope you can come see the show.
