"Fun Home" Sound Design Master Class

Sound Design 300X300

What is the sound of crickets in midsummer, exactly? Or a crowd on the street outside? And how does one seamlessly engineer live music from dozens of sources to bring out the best in each part while serving the story being told? These questions and more are all in a day's work for a Sound Designer.  

Learn how our in-house Sound Designer Casi Pacilio uses sound in our productions to produce dramatic effect. Whether it's a specific sound effect, such as Audrey II taking over Peoria, or more subtle, like the intonations in Constellations, or even downright practical (live mixing a musical production with dozens of actors, band members, and countless other moving parts), Casi will show you how it's done. Through demonstrations and descriptions of equipment and techniques, you'll walk away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of one of the most subtle magic makers in the theater.
