Tanghalang Ateneo utilized Mackie’s DL series mixer and compact SRM series speakers to help present Anna Ziegler’s “BOY”. Sound designer Teresa Barozo used a 6 speaker plus subwoofer system to deliver the play’s musical score and sound effects. Using the multiple speakers to give a certain atmosphere to different scenes. From filling the room with rock music to give the feel the of a rock concert, to simple sound effects from a single speaker to give the impression of its source. Even a tiny Mackie CR3 serves as an audio source from under the stage, playing out sound effects that are part of the scene, a record player, a tape recorder, etc.
"The Mackie audio system allowed us to explore various creative approaches in theater sound design. This helped in making the whole theater experience aurally engaging, aiding the audience in their journey as the narrative unfolds.”
Teresa Barrozo, Sound Design and Score
“Music and Sound can bypass our emotions. It triggers memories, associations, it can shift our attention. Having a system that allows us to hear the full range of sound, coming from specific areas onstage, makes it a powerful tool in storytelling.”
