Sound Design Portfolio

I do not claim any of the songs as my original work, however the mixing and editing of songs and sound effects for these productions is my own original work. Some of the things you are not able to hear from these samples are the correct layering of the effects, directionality or proper equalization for a theatre space.
Becky's New Car

Design Concept Statement:

"When a woman says she wants a new car, what she really means is she wants a new life." ~Becky

 

How many of us can say we have had the courage to give up our normal everyday life for the chance to travel a new road to a new life?

Becky Starts her car and drives off. We hear her engine rev and the sound of  her passing other cars with a music underscore

Everytime Becky thinks she is close to settling on a path, she suddenly changes her mind or something happend to change it and static returns.

The theme song to Becky's life.

The static clears when Becky finally makes a choice.
