lights! sound! action!

Enchanted Forest 2014
Here at DM Audio we have been flat out for the last few weeks with, among other things, supplying sound for Scotland’s momentous referendum events, and are back noses to the grindstone this week. Vanishing Point Theatre’s production Tomorrow is back in Scotland on the last leg of its tour after performances at the Brighton Festival, SESC in Sao Paulo and the Cena Contemporanea in Brasilia.  It is being presented at the Tramway Theatre, Glasgow between 3 – 11 October and these are the only dates in Scotland.  We are delighted to once again be supplying sound for the performances which are slightly closer to home for us this time!  Vanishing Point Theatre are a wonderfully imaginative group who create new theatre for modern audiences. They like to make the ordinary become extraordinary and the extraordinary become ordinary, creating experiences that are both visceral and entertaining. Tomorrow explores what it is to grow old and be cared for in a world where myth and spirituality have been subsumed by what we all know to be true – that we are born, we live and we die. The production has received excellent reviews including: brutally beautiful…makes you shiver – The Guardian.
We are very happy to once again be working alongside NL Productions on the Enchanted Forest at Faskally Wood, Pitlochry. Marcin and his team have been on site for the last week, undertaking the huge task of bringing sound to this year’s event elemental which runs from 3- 26 October .  This year, thanks to the generosity of Event Scotland, along with the amazing light designs of Kate Bomney and Simon Hayes and musical score by sound designers RJ McConnell and Jon Beale there will be an extra element to the Enchanted Forest experience with a troupe of aerial artists performing gravity defying antics amidst the tree tops.  It sounds like this year will be that extra bit special and I for one will be looking forward to heading up to Perthshire to see this unmissable event.  Another first for the Forest this year is a charity event taking place on Thursday 2nd October before the first official performance on 3rd October; this is in aid of Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) and Scottish Autism, so if you’re planning on going early in the run why not go on the 2nd and support these 2 charities. You can book tickets for all dates now online.
