Mixing Musicals returns for 2013

Forming an important part of Orbital Sound’s training programme, this year’s Mixing Musicals course is running across 27-28 August.

Designed to help aspiring theatre sound operators take their show mixing skills to the next level, this two-day course focuses on the practical skills and theory behind the best-practice FOH mixing requirements of musicals.

Participants will be taken through every stage of the process – from the rehearsal room to setting up a desk in its base state, including the theory, introduction to why line-by-line mixing is so important, and what happens when you don’t do it.

Hands-on experience is an essential aspect of the course, which includes a trip to the West End for a behind-the-scenes look at a show and chance to talk to the sound team.

Numbers are strictly limited to 24 – with the course running at Orbital’s Brixton training centre.
