Thoughts before meeting workshop participants:

1. Sound technician at the Cricot 2 Theatre
– service provider
– co-creator

2. Sound as a Great Actor co-creating the intensity of a performance (‘Creative qualities of actors’ [in:] T. Kantor, ‘Work of Art and the Process’, Vol. II)

3. The role of experience or lack thereof.

4. Shared feelings:

Kantor

actor

sound

5. Sound atmosphere accompanying a creative process during rehearsals, at home and in … life as an integrating element giving a sense of security and strength.

6. Inspiring factors:

Creator

development of events on stage conversations

own thoughts, impulses, risk…

Sources of sound:

– ready material, existing
– wanted material, sometimes substitute material…
– FOUND material and its processing, in accordance with the Creator’s suggestions but also following one’s own invention and taking risks
– own recordings

7. Analogue and digital techniques – pros and cons.

Etudes prepared together with Participants using analogue equipment (reel tape recorder – splicing; cassette recorder)

8. Presentation of the production ‘Let the Artists Die’ using a mixer and interference, to realise the importance of playing with directions.

9. Analysis of the ‘construction’ of the character of Jonasz Stern from the last production, from the point of view of sound technician. Material from rehearsals, partially unpublished.
