The Brothers Grimm are composing their first electronic sound score for NoExit Performance’s production of MACBETH this June, 2013 (Indianapolis). Director Michael Burke is devising to explore uncomfortable territories in Shakespeare’s classic dark tragedy through a site specific setting. The show will not be a traditional rendition, but instead 13 patients trapped in a single room of a mental ward – all reciting their own version of Macbeth at the same time.
The concept for the score involves setting less musical elements. No melody. No harmony. No rhythm. Instead, we’re creating sound banks of recorded foley & will treat/effect them to our purposes. With these sound banks we will improvise the score on an Akai APC 40 with the ability to instantaneously surprise, inspire, pace, & effect the actors performances.
Special thanks to Bradbury’s Coffee for letting us record the sounds in their space! Also, thank you Jon Brumbaugh for recording audio & Glynnis Ritchie for taking excellent video!
