Covering every phase of a theatrical production, this fourth edition of Sound and Music for the Theatre traces the process of sound design from initial concept through implementation in actual performances. The book discusses the early evolution of sound design and how it supports the play, from researching sources for music and effects, to negotiating a contract. It shows you how to organize the construction of the sound design elements, how the designer functions in a rehearsal, and how to set up and train an operator to run sound equipment. This instructive information is interspersed with `war stores' describing real-life problems with solutions that you can apply in your own work, whether you're a sound designer, composer, or sound operator.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"James LeBrecht and Deena Kaye have written the most practical, broad-minded, useful book on sound in the theatre that has, to my knowledge, ever been published in English.... It is a book that every sound designer needs to have; it is a book that every theatre person would enjoy and profit from."

-Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director at The Public Theater
