Full of Sound & Fury - A Look at the Sound Design & Original Music by Lindsay Jones for Macbeth

Michael Eddy

'Did I tell you that I need you to create a score that kind of sounds like Game of Thrones in addition to the music for Macbeth?’ “Uh, no. I don’t think you did.” This was a call between director Robert O’Hara and original music composer/sound designer Lindsay Jones. This was three days before rehearsals were to begin for Macbeth at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) “So, in addition to mixing in trap music, lots of sound effects, and other really exciting stuff, I quickly started writing a score that sounded like Game of Thrones,” laughs Jones. Fortunately, Jones and O’Hara have worked together on a number of productions and the process for Macbeth would result in a composition and sound design that one critic described as, “mind-blowing.”
