Lil' Sound Design Party

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

I had the pleasure of working on the first iteration of this show with writer/director, Annie Levy, last year.  It's certainly come a long way and is now paired with another show directed by Jay Stern.  Both pieces deal with themes of identity, family, and mythology and as someone who is exploring his own ancestry, I find them particularly interesting.

Developing sound and music cues for both shows was a lot of fun! I love using found sound and scouring the interwebs for all sorts of goodies to throw into the mix. We also had the opportunity to explore the Latvian Daina song/poetic form, and I composed several tunes, setting Annie's text to music.

Both pieces turned out beautifully and if you're around this weekend, get your tickets here.
