Sound Design for Theater, Dance, Performance (MSR2239.01)

Eli Crews

This course will cover the creative process of designing sound for theatrical performance. We will explore various approaches to design for live theater and dance through close examination of scripts and movement scores, and develop compositional and/or sound-based material appropriate to the context. Hardware and software tools used to express sound designs will be introduced, and we will work with the recording, editing and mixing techniques used in preparing music and sounds for use in a performance design. We will look at basic theatrical sound playback and reinforcement systems and examine how we approach programming recorded sources for use in productions.
