Rhinoceros

for Jordan Tragash

Rhinoceros

I was the sound designer and engineer for Jordan Tragash’s production of the play Rhinoceros, written by Eugène Ionesco. The play was produced by Second Stage at Wesleyan University and mounted in the Patricelli ’92 Theater during the spring 2018 semester.

For the show’s music, I settled on a mix of genres that juxtapose classical orchestrations with electronic/pop songs to reflect the play’s themes of absurdity and confusion. The score gradually devolves into an amalgamation of rhinoceros sounds, which I produced by pitching down human grunts. For the production’s sound system, I placed subwoofers under the audience’s seating such that the aforementioned rhino sounds would vibrate the entire floor of the theater.
