My Sound Design for Buried Child
Tomorrow (March 11th, 2011) is the opening performance of Sam Shepard’s Buried Child, directed by Timothy Trimingham Lee.
It is being performed at Upstairs at The Gatehouse in Highgate, London.
For this show I was asked to create several different kinds of rain sounds, including a sort of rain symphony of the sound of rain on and around an old farm house, for 20 minutes of Pre-show. Creaky porch doors, birds, and electric clippers transformed into a nightmare were other sounds required. I’ll try to describe more about the construction of these sounds in another post soon.
