A collage of images from Attempts on Her Life, with sound from the show.

Music by Richard E. Moore and Justin Coope.

Well, made it through tech weekend with only a few minor scrapes and bruises. Attempts on her Life by Martin Crimp opens this weekend at defunkt theatre, and I for one am rather pleased with the result.  A combination of found sound, original music (with the help of Justin Coope of Son of Rust fame), and a few computer voices, it’s a dynamic soundscape that I’m rather fond of. I hope that audiences like it as well, and I hope that they find that it fits the scattered (but loosely bound) nature of the narrative.

I’m going to put up some sounds after the run begins, so as not to sour the experience for the hundreds of you coming here before you see the show (perhaps thousands), but I will put some pictures out for your perusal.

Currently working on Attempts on her Life by Martin Crimp with defunkt theatre.  Decided to record the answering machine messages on speakerphone. Weirdest session yet.

(mic insulated with camping foam. Can’t see the cell phone, ‘coz I’m using it to take the picture!  but I’ll put it on speaker and place it in the center, there. Hi-Tek!)
