SOUND SCAPE

Genre: Festival

In the modern theater, unsung artists called Sound Designers are quietly engaged to flesh out theatrical productions with recordings of crickets, doorbells and phone rings. They fill your Tempests with winds, your Streetcar with street noise and your Vanyas with gunshots. They mix your incidental music with your offstage voices and invisibly support the director’s vision. If they’re doing their job correctly, you won’t even notice their contribution.

For four weeks this June, The Brick says this to the modern theater: no more crickets.

Introducing a theater festival where Sound Designers are primary artists.

Employing The Brick’s new surround sound system, New York’s most talented sound designers are invited to create theatrical experiences that foreground their art and re- establish the theater as a new type of auditorium for the 21st century stage.
