The Director and Sound
Study in Practice
From Beginner to Pro
It is essential for creators of performance to be able to hear the music, understand its influence and communicate the ideas to sound designers. We have seen tons of courses on "Music for Film", but what about Music in Theatre? This course is the answer
Music and sounds are one of the central features of performance, and directors are required to understand the basics of music theory and its application in performance production. The collaboration process of director with composers, music directors, and sound is a creative process, however, still requires professionals. The effective and fruitful collaboration between these parties is a complex mixture of many different techniques, experiences, and individual competencies.
This course will introduce you to the musical elements used by musicians to create a piece of music: pulse, tempo, metre, rhythm, melody, harmony, structure, texture, timbre and dynamics. You’ll learn how to identify the different musical elements. Hearing the musical elements is the first step to understanding how a piece of music ‘works’, but translating what you hear into words will require using the language which musicians use. This is the key to successful collaboration between director and composer or sound designer.
