Two short but excellent videos from the Royal Shakespeare company about the composition and preparation for music for the stage. Enjoy.
Two videos today: the first is about the process of composing and developing the music for the smash play at the UK’s National Theatre (and later around the world) Warhorse:
And the second one reveals the process of designing sound for the same production.
This video can’t be embedded, but I urge you to go have a look on the national theatre website. This is the introduction to a whole section of videos about the music that goes on in the National Theatre in London (UK).
This week’s video isn’t strictly about straight theatre, but it gives a good insight into the lives of those who play music in theatrical settings.
