Not all of our sound effects and music can be sourced from the internet – many are quite unique to the performance and all have to be mixed and edited or recorded specially. As we said in the last post, this comedy is sound-rich and some sound cues needed to be created from scratch. Our rehearsal hut, the Forum has thin walls. So it was with some amusement we had to record some rather loud adult sounds that could only be awarded an 18 rating. We can only imagine what anyone passing outside would think we get up to in there. When we realised it was leaving time at the Scout hut next door we thought we’d better take a break, although I’m sure some of them were thinking that they might be applying to join in the near future.
But now it’s done and our laptop is loaded with 95 programmed sound cue actions and is set up to use in rehearsals. Richard and new member Reuben have been let loose on the keyboard and armed with cue-marked script have helped uplift our rehearsals this week to the next level.
Coming soon… our publicity poster, learning lines, more rehearsal insights… oh, and Christmas!
