Chris Wood Designs

Jane Page and I wanted a cinematic sound design that progressively grew throughout the show until it would burst from the seams in its final moments. The show utilized 23 speakers on 14 channels of control, allowing  both the pre-show and the finale to be engulfing in full surround. When the Angel spoke, her dry voice would go to one speaker in the space and her wet echoing voice would move to the opposite speaker in the theater. These two mixes would constantly be moving from speaker to speaker.
