Mountain Language / Ashes to Ashes

Royal Court Theatre and Lincoln Centre Pinter Festival, New York. Director: Katie Mitchell

"...Mitchell's beautifully controlled aesthetic and imaginative use of sound reveals two plays where the language games and the scalpel-sharp dissection of human relationships carry an intriguing universality." Evening Standard

"audience members' ears are invaded with hostile sounds... It feels as if each individual has been shoved rudely into the world of obscene and cruelly whimsical power games that we so comfortably associate with other political regimes. ... imaginative use of sound..." Evening Standard

"Dogs howl. Bells clang. Helicopter blades whirr. Katie Mitchell's production opens with a tremendous aural assault clangorously conjured by Gareth Fry." Micheal Billington, THE GUARDIAN

The Noise of Time

Complcite with the Emerson String Quarter, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, Berlin. Director: Simon McBurney

Sound Design with Christopher Shutt

Opened in New York 2000, and subsequently toured to Barbican London, Berlin, Illinois, Massachussetts, Bergen, Vienna, Bath, Zurich, Paris and Moscow.

"The evening begins with a single old-fashioned radio spotlighted on a chair, an image that segues into a parade of illuminated radios, floating through the darkness. There's an aural background of static and shards of speech and music. (The highly sophisticated sound design is by Christopher Shutt and Gareth Fry.) The sounds coalesce into a variety of more comprehensible patterns. " NY Times, Ben Brantley
