ASD2 | How We Listen-How We Hear | John Taylor

EVENT DETAILS | 5.15pm to 7.45pm on Friday 31 August 2018

Event Fee | Free for OISTAT members | £5.00 for non-members (plus one off OISTAT registration fee on arrival) Booking required

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION | August 10th  2018

OUTLINE | How do we listen to music naturally and what happens when we use a traditional sound reinforcement system?

With the help of a live music ensemble John Taylor of d&b audiotechnik will explain the function of the human ear/brain system in the perception of music and how this fundamental acuity enables us to mix in our heads on a millisecond by millisecond basis. Along the way, we'll discover how traditional sound systems effectively disable this ability, how that effects the way we mix audio and what this understanding means for the future of live sound reinforcement.

EVENT DETAILS | 1.30pm to 2.30pm on Friday 31 August 2018

Event Fee | Free for OISTAT members | £5.00 for non-members (plus one off OISTAT registration fee on arrival) Booking required

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION | Sunday 29 July 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.

So far this year, Paul’s work includes Amadeus (Olivier nomination), Macbeth, Absolute Hell at the NT; Julius Caesar at the Bridge; Caroline Or Change at Hampstead; Beginning at the Ambassadors; Mary Stuart at the Duke of York’s, The Inheritance at the Young Vic; The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie at the Donmar; The Jungle at the Playhouse.
