The sound designer and composer are the most aware of and responsible for the entire aural landscape of the production. Our comprehensive work contributes to the theatrical experience through all representations of music and sound. To do this we employ a vast array of practical and creative tools that facilitate our work. The artistry of the theatrical sound designer and composer has become a crucial part of theatrical productions. Both the sound designer and the composer are often working with the same elements and share the same artistic goals, but in reality these are separate roles with distinct responsibilities.
In this site we describe what sound designers and composers bring to the world of theatre. This is the inspiration behind the founding of the Theatrical Sound Designers and Composers Association. Our mission is to provide information that illuminates the ideas and creative vision behind the work we do today in sound design and composition for theatre.
We hope to introduce you to how music and sound can enhance a theatrical production by providing energy, nuance, and the emotional life that brings the audience to a richer experience in the theatrical journey. We look forward to introducing you to the the art of storytelling through music and sound with our fervent belief in the power of live performance.
