ASD 1 |Paul Arditti: Theatre Acoustics for Set Designers: how your design affects what the audience hear!

EVENT DETAILS | 11am to 12.30pm on Friday 31 August 2018

OUTLINE | Whilst the architecture of a theatre clearly has a huge effect on how well people can hear a show, the set can be equally helpful or damaging. Paul picks a few examples from his recent theatrical experience and suggests how sound designers and set designers can work together to make a show work well acoustically.

Paul is a theatre sound designer with over 30 years experience of designing plays and musicals. Although based in London, where most of Paul’s shows originate, transfers and tours have taken him around the world. Starting principally as a designer of “content”, Paul has watched how the expectations of audiences have changed with respect to “delivery” in recent years, and has become increasingly fascinated by the science and psychology of hearing and listening.
