This is the trailer for Orfeo Group’s Island of Slaves production at the Boston Center for the Arts in February, 2010. Original score by Bill Barclay. The design for this show was nominated for an Elliot Norton Award, and the show picked up the group’s second Norton in a row for Best Fringe Production.
For my work as a sound designer, I use the following programs. Thankfully in this day and age, such platforms are always besting each other at interfacing more smoothly. Please don’t hesitate to ask how these all fit together.
My DAW of choice is Ableton LIVE
My software notation program of choice is SIBELIUS. And yes, Sibelius 6 is worth it.
I also use LOGIC and occasionally Garage Band.
REASON has been a great sampler to me in the past, and this platform is improving all the time.
I use Ethno (and yes, Ethno 2 is worth it) for world instrument sounds.
VSL, Vienna Symphonic Library, is too expensive but also worth it. I am adding orchestral samples to my arsenal all the time.
Here are some samples using these software families in mellifluous and jarring ways:
