THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE
BY: DWAYNE HARTFORd
BASED ON THE NOVEL BY: KATE Dicamillo
DIRECTED BY: BOB COLBY
SOUND DESIGNER & FOLEY ARTIST: ELIZABETH CAHILL
The sound design concept for this show focused on three main aspects of the production. The first was the collaborative nature of the ensemble. Nine actors played over forty roles, while moving all of the scenery, changing costume pieces, and building the aural world. The second aspect being the period of the show (1930's-1950's). I chose to take on the challenge of having a design that could have been produced in this time period. And finally I wanted to make the understanding of how sound works clear to the children coming to see the show, as the show was intended for young audiences. Through extensive research and experiments of how to make a variety of objects sound like something they are not, the sound design was completely executed by the use of Foley.
