Transition Music Playlist

Sound Effect Montage

In this montage, I wanted to minimize the story of the show through the auditory effects I used within.  Each piece of music was used as a transition moment between scenes but in this montage, I use them to represent the different themes of the characters logging onto the chat group. Once the final "character" enters the trauma that was inflicted on Elliot from the Iraq war begins to take over. In the show, I used the ringing, and static to indicate the PTSD was setting in. As those moments become more intense the flashes become more frequent until finally, it sounds like he is back on the battlefield. The pain of his trauma goes away in the end with the water droplet of Odessa using again. 

*WARNING RINGING, DISTORTED STATIC, AND AUDITORY FLASHES*

Microphone Placement Test

While still in concept the Costume Designer wanted to entertain the idea of the actors wearing clear face masks to allow the audience to see the actors mouth. However we had a few concerns about the auditory quality of these mask. Click the button below to learn more about the tests we conducted.

Prolouge

During the opening prologue, the director and I decided that we wanted to send each section of the poem to a different speaker zone. In Qlab I had eleven different speaker zones to work with, which surrounds the audience. In order to recreate the live experience for streaming, I re-recorded my Qlab groups into Logic where I then panned each speaker zone in relation to where they are to the audience. Listen with headphones for a full stereo effect.

Terminator X Remix Bomb-itty of Errors

This sound effect opened the show, giving the audience it's first introduction to the fun nature of the show. Drawing inspiration from Public Ememy's song Terminator X, we recorded the cast yelling "The Bomb-itty" to add a personal flair specific to our production.

Concept College

In the early stages of this production the director expressed an interest of having underscore during key moments of the play. Above is a college of songs that express the style and emotion of music I wanted to pull for those moments. 

Business Woman Enviroment SFX

During the scene where the Little Prince meets the Business Woman I created this college of office sounds to reflect the busy world she spends her time in.
