In the theatre, sound and musical cues must be carefully prepared and executed with precision. 

In this session students will source and prepare sound effects and musical cues, and then learn how to trigger these elements in real time to a pre-recorded radio play. This is a unique workshop that gives students the chance to feel the tension of being a live theatre sound technician, while also creatively setting up the sound design themselves.

Student work will be available for download after the workshop.
