LEARN ABOUT SOUND DESIGN FROM RBC APPRENTICE & PROFESSIONAL SOUND DESIGNER, DEANNA H. CHOI
The Musical Stage Company is delighted to announce that RBC Apprentice Sound Designer, Deanna H. Choi is virtually offering a free webinar on sound design as a culmination of her RBC Apprenticeship! Strange Sounds: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mic is geared towards directors, choreographers, designers, producers, and students. Learn more below!
ABOUT THE OPORTUNITY
Sound is often considered a nebulous and opaque domain of stagecraft. The use of microphones is usually accompanied by any number of horror stories and the dreaded ‘feedback’ squeal. Sound designer and composer Deanna H. Choi takes you behind the curtain in an hour-long
discussion on the tools, techniques, and art of sound reinforcement.
This webinar is geared towards directors, choreographers, designers, producers, and students. For anyone interested in live sound, this is an opportunity to gain insight into the sound designer’s process, develop a common language to feel more at-home in the sound
world, and engage in a conversation on how to use technology to heighten rather than hinder performance.
