Audio for Theatre – February 10, 2018 | 11:00am – 12:30pm
Examine the components of a typical theatre sound system: wired and wireless microphones, mixing consoles, speakers and their placement, intercom and stage announcement systems, playback systems for sound effects, and power sources. A portion of the program will examine the variety and differences in microphones and will help in the understanding on how to use the “right tool for the right job.” Audio for Theatre will not teach acoustic and electronic theory, but will focus on the practical aspects of what an audio engineer needs to know to survive in today's live entertainment environment and particularly in live theatre.
This session will be taught by Luis Chavesta who brings a wealth of experience in entertainment sound including theater, music and video production. He has toured extensively both internationally and in the US.
