Her Naked Skin - Sound Designer
A moving and harrowing show for actors and audience alike. At times shocking and sickening. Discrete sound design was required for this show to bring the audience imperceptibly closer to the action. The amplification of each actor followed them around the stage.
Sound Design Notes: I wanted the audience to feel close to the perfomers and specified radio microphones for all 20 performers with the microphone heads hidden in the hairline. I created a complicated sound design and divided the stage into zones. Accurate programming of the sound system, and calculated speaker placement enabled the routing of each performer's amplified vocals to numerous speakers at differing volumes, dependent on the performers zone. This enabled the amplified sound of each actor to appear to come from their exact position on the stage whether stationary or moving and the amplification to be imperceptible.
