Aural Endeavors at Everyman Theatre


One of the almost-imperceptible layers that make up every theatrical experience is often taken for granted by the audience: the soundtrack. What goes into creating the sometimes subtle array of tones and noise that accompany a live performance?

We ask sound designer David Lamont Wilson about his approach. He captured and recreated authentic soundscapes for two shows at Everyman Theatre: Queens Girl in the World and Queens Girl in Africa.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Melissa Gerr is a Senior Producer for On the Record. She started in public media at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minn., where she is from, and then worked as a field producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. She made the jump to audio-lover in Baltimore as a digital media editor at Mid-Atlantic Media and Laureate Education, Inc. and as a field producer for "Out of the Blocks." Her beat is typically the off-beat with an emphasis on science, culture and things that make you say, 'Wait, what?'
