Had the pleasure to work with Graham Abbey on Michael Healey's excellent adaptation of The Front Page. For this piece I had the pleasure of writing for an 8 piece jazz band, to set the play in its 1928 period. Such a luxury these days, and such fun to do an old school recording session with a live band.
What an excellent project! I worked with the folks at Common Boots theatre to do sound design for 6 short audio plays based around site specific ideas at Scadding Court. We recorded all the pieces in binaural sound, using my new dummy head, binaural microphone to create really effective 3d spatialization for all the pieces.
Wrote some creepy chamber music to support the Shaw Festival production of Rope, directed by the excellent Jani Lauzon. A gripping play with some excellent work on stage.
Shannon Litzenberger's beautiful dance show, based on the book of the same name. This was a lovely full length dance piece that allowed me to really stretch out to support a varied and challenging show. I was honoured to be nominated for best sound/music for Dance at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards for this show.
Worked on a new play, The Mules with Vikki Anderson's DVxT company. This one was a great show about drug mules gone wrong with really strong performances by the cast. Not a busy sound show, but a fun one to be part of.
