Covering every phase of a theatrical production, this fourth edition of Sound and Music for the Theatre traces the process of sound design from initial concept through implementation in actual performances. The book discusses the early evolution of sound design and how it supports the play, from researching sources for music and effects, to negotiating a contract. It shows you how to organize the construction of the sound design elements, how the designer functions in a rehearsal, and how to set up and train an operator to run sound equipment. This instructive information is interspersed with ‘war stores’ describing real-life problems with solutions that you can apply in your own work, whether you’re a sound designer, composer, or sound operator.

About the Author:

Deena Kaye has composed, designed sound and directed music for more than 200 productions at theatres nationally and internationally, including The Public Theater and the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. She has lectured and been a guest artist at numerous universities around the country and is an audition, vocal and dialect coach in New York City.

James LeBrecht is the president of Berkeley Sound Artists and has served as the resident sound designer at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. His more than 100 sound designs have been heard at dozens of theatres throughout the world.

Review:

"James LeBrecht and Deena Kaye have written the most practical, broad-minded, useful book on sound in the theatre that has, to my knowledge, ever been published in English.... It is a book that every sound designer needs to have; it is a book that every theatre person would enjoy and profit from."

-Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director at The Public Theater
