The productions below highlight some of my ongoing exploration of integrating live and pre-recorded songs into the design using text from the script and coaching actors to deliver. Many productions I’ve been involved in have demanded some kind of live element and/or live, mixed with recorded. This has been a worthwhile challenge and one of balance, not just in levels, but also in identifying the purpose of the recorded and live sounds in the design.
