Abstract: This work comprises the sound design and digital composition for the Q Theatre’s production of Frankenstein. This work comprises a cross disciplinary production drawing on the original Frankenstein text by Mary Shelley. The work was developed through a collaborative approach known as ‘devising’ where all the creative team work together to shape the direction of the final work. The show explores the combination of mediums of music, speech/text, and video. This culminated in a performance involving amplified/unamplified text, digital vs acoustic sound and composition, live vs pre-recorded sound, live vs real time projections of the actors, live video processing and live video remixing of historic Frankenstein film footage.
The work explores the original Frankenstein themes though a contemporary lense, including fear, cyborgs, ego, ambition and the theme of technological development.
