michaelhayes: Oh our sweet dead Moon.:

I recently completed sound design for Annex Theatre's new play: The Moon is a Dead World.

The play is written by Mike Daisey, his first actually, who is a fairly successful and lively monologist.

When I was asked to do the show I nearly gave my knee-jerk "NO." that I've been cultivating for a while now.  It's taken a lot of work to get to where I can turn these things down, since I always say "yes!".  But, between Fog People, Hands of Kali, and mixing the Deepsleep Narcotics Company record I've got my hands MORE than full.

But, the director mentioned he was thinking of more ambient soundscape type sounds, which of course is my bread and butter and something I excelled at before I even knew anything about audio.  Also seeing an opportunity to try and turn the delivery process on its head a little bit and do something a little more than put a bunch of sounds on a CD and I was hooked.
