War of the Worlds – theater show


War of the Worlds – theater show

A recent project we were involved in was recording and mixing backing vocals and sound effects for the a theater production of War of the Worlds live planetarium experience.

The existing soundtrack was supplied from Jeff Wayne’s original recording and our job was to we record and mix extra backing vocals to support the live singers.

The soundtrack is in 5.1 surround sound so we had fun placing sounds in this 3 dimensional environment to increase the audiences’s sense of immersion in the show.

War of the Worlds played at Auckland’s Stardome Observatory. It was visual and aural feast combining live singing and acting with pre-recorded surround sound and animation. The production is hoped to be repeated in the future.
