Bard on the Beach

My ongoing work with Bard on the Beach in Vancouver over the years has challenged me to compose music and design sound for a tent. Subwoofers beneath audience members, speakers pointed in all manner of places, inside and outside the tent…actors performing instruments, rhythmic voice and choral work using the text as inspiration. All have been prototyped. Below are a few examples of the variety of music that have supported transitions, underscored scenes and supported more choreographed moments (All’s Well that Ends Well, Richard II, Merchant of Venice, Henry VI, Elizabeth Rex)
