Fables For A Boy : Sound Designer - The Lost Theatre
The 8 vocalists used body worn radio microphones and instrumental music was provided by a small band using personal monitoring, amplified from a backstage room. The score is for a much larger Orchestra and I created instrument click tracks to accompany the live musicians adding depth to the live music and an immersive sound scape.
