SOUND DESIGN FOR NEW WRITING : “Shipped” by ENO MFON
With Theatre West and director Jesse Jones, at Hamilton House Bristol.
Characters spend time listening to a small battery-powered radio: I designed a method for broadcasting sounds to the actual onstage prop radio, sync’ed to sound layers from theatre’s main PA. I made these ‘Radio Biafra’ sequences from a mixture of found broadcasts, archive sounds and bespoke recordings made with the company.
