about

"They aren't trying to get the listener to feel anything", writes Thor Bjørn Krebs of the characters in 'About Tommy'. This is a unique challenge for a sound designer, and it lead me to this evocative suite of drones, pulses and ambiences that make up the score for the 2013 Red Stitch Actors' Theatre production of David Duchin's translation, directed by Kat Henry. Drawing on military motifs, the blasted wastelands of bombed-out cities, and the tedium of war, these textures added a layer that removes us - geographically, historically, psychologically - from war, reflecting on post-traumatic stress and alienation.
