All cheekiness aside though, all this to say that it ‘aint rocket science. Sound design for theatre is a somewhat newfound interest for me (and potentially another avenue to pursue). The important thing is to play around, have fun with it, and you’ll soon start to figure out what works.
Make sure you have a pair of decent headphones though.
Every time I look at the monthly calendar for this crazy project I feel my heart rate go up.
