Vengeance Is The Lord's: Lights & Sound

by:  Rebecca Bellan at 10/29/2010

Paints, props, and costumes aren’t the only shops that are making waves in the production of Vengeance is the Lord’s. In fact, lighting and sound departments are putting into action some really cool ideas for the upcoming production.

Kat Herzig, master electrician, said that the show will be set on a turn table, so lights is working with the scene shop to bring power to the set. They are sending power to the turntable through a ring on the central pivot to a dimmer rack, which will be hidden in the set. The rack contains 16 low voltage dimmers that then run power throughout the set to wherever it’s needed. “The cool thing about the turntable,” said Kat, “is that the control signal from the light board to the rack is wireless.” In other words, there will be no cables so that the turntable can spin. The light board will be able to turn on any and all electricity within the set. For example, lamps, chandeliers, a Christmas tree, and a working coffee pot will all be turned on via a push of a button in the lighting booth. In addition to this innovative dimming arrangement, Kat said that they’ll be using fiber optic strands — the same ones they used in Two Men in Florence — for stars in the sky. I don’t know what fiber optic actually means, but it sounds like it will look pretty.

Sound designer Ben Emerson said that Vengeance will have original music composed by David Van Tieghem. They are talking about composing music for cello, piano, and other ethereal instrumentation for the play. This instrumentation, said Ben, will be intentionally sparse. In addition to the composed music, Ben is deciding on what other sounds he thinks will be good to provide a sonic underscore. There will be very subtle bits of environmental sound such as the sound of wind for the late fall and winter scenes, and birds chirping during Easter. He is also trying out other specific sounds, like an owl hooting, which one of the actors has to interplay with.

That’s all for today. I’m excited to see how the other shops here on Huntington Ave. are progressing with their work.

  1. I have really eynjoed seeing your card and just love all the colours you have used. I love visiting blogs that are in a different part of the world to me. You are wishing for cooler weather and here in Perth Australia we are hoping for warmer weather... fingers crossed. Thanks for sharing to take on this weeks sketch at Unscripted Sketches.

  3. Dr. Overton:“To elect” meaning merely “to choose,” all of Mankind is currently locked into the narrow rut of “to elect” as if it can only mean “to vote,” that is, to play our assigned-from-above role – our only only only role – in the Establishment-owned PPC (Political Popularity Contest). Virtually all of the “problems” alluded to in your book would disappear should we find a more democratic election system than the PPC. Ruling out wrestling matches, beauty reviews, and spelling bees for all the obvious reasons, the method of firmly establishing First Amendment-styled democracy in the place of big-moneyed elitism and REAL Republic in the place of republic-disguised Oligarchy is to turn all Election Commissions into draft boards and make all non-deferred adult citizens candidates for all political offices for which they are age-residency qualified. I.e., replace the BLANKET PPC with the BLANKET Political Lottery so that our federal and State governments will no longer be monopolized by only one kind of egotist, the one popularly derided as the “Career Politician.” The PPC is the screen which rules out anything close to ordinary or typical Americans being elected to public office.If you have objections to this, please include much higher remarks than just crystal-balling it with “It’ll never work” and/or “You’ll never make it fly.” Tell me, instead, why Oligarchy is not our enemy, or why getting rid of the oligarch control of government would be bad, or why a mere cross-section of the non-deferred general public would not be more democratic than the professional-politicians-only arrangement now existing.Thank you. car insurance quotes cheap insurance ca
  4. I’ve got freelancers here in India, what I really want is a full time content writer in the office. If you know of anyone that might want to spend a year in India, even if just for some working experience, send them to me!Regarding doing a job you enjoy, if someone is in a job they don’t enjoy they need to take a long hard look at why they are doing it and why they aren’t doing something they enjoy. OK, if you want to be a writer or artist then you might have to do some crappy jobs till you get your break, but if you give up on your dream and ‘settle’ for something less than what you want then you’ve only got yourself to blame @Father: Aerospace Engineering was what I wanted to do at the time because it interested me (and still does). I didn’t do it because I thought it would lead to a higher salary. Similarly, I’m now working in IT (well, marketing in IT) and really enjoy what I do. I must do because I earn less than my little sister and moved to India – because it’s what I want to do, not because it pays more. airline credit card low interest credit card rate
  5. Cubemate, I’m afaid I’m with 4:46 - and I haven’t worked in awful agencies and I’m not a ‘soulless hack’.I do agree with a lot of what you say though – it’s just that interrogating the client’s business and problem could and should be done by smart account people, and the creatives should be brought in earlier in that process.Creatives and creative directors are responsible for a lot of the great ‘planning’ that goes on in advertising, that has always been the case. Allowing the creatives to get in on the problem early and work with the account team to find some interesting angles is a simple and bullshit-free way of working. What you can ‘planning’ I just call smart advertising thinking, that should be done by smart account directors with insight from creatives.I think it’s the separating out of this task into the separate role of ‘planning’ that has had a detrimental effect on advertising overall.Planning as a separate role in the advertising process only has a place in a model of the ad business where account people are just seen a bag carriers, and creatives as caged monkeys (or children LOL) let loose to do a bit of finger painting at the end.‘Account planning’ as a separate role tends to over intellectualise and over complicate this part of the job, and go too far towards the solution, and attempt to exert ownership over the problem and the direction for the solution. This leaves little room for the unexpected or the category-busting idea.Yes, good advertising does get done in spite of the presence of planning in the modern ad business. But without planning - account directors given back responsibility for business side of the problem, and creatives encouraged to get involved at that stage – advertising can get its real sparkle and crackle back.It’s not a coincidence that the vast majority of historical work that we hold up as great has been arrived through this simple way of working. cheap business insurance low rate credit card
  6. Well since you ask:1. I want to know why some Chiro’s still claim that subluxations are the cause of most medical problems. 2. I want to know why some Chiro’s think they are on the same par as medical Doctors when they have no training in proper diagnosis, which may result in a delay in patients being referred to a real doctor.3. I want to know why some chiropractors claim they can treat illnesses and diseases in which they have no business treating, much less received training in. E.g. Asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer. 4. I want to know why Chiro’s resort to logical fallacies instead of providing evidence when challenged.Edit:So, let me get this straight, the newbie, flora, is going to drive over to Yahoo HQ and rat on us?
