The Point Source Audio Sounding Board: Combine Show Mix with Ops for All-in-One Headset Solution

The Point Source Audio Sounding Board Blog

The Point Source Audio Sounding Board Blog caught up with Lighting director Matt Jones on the Ed Sheeran's ÷ Tour (pronounced “Divide Tour”), which originated in Turin, Italy March 2017 and is the third world concert tour by the English singer and songwriter. On its second stop in the U.S. at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco on August 21, 2018, Jones discussed how Point Source Audio became an integral part of the production tech. This is a solution that is just as viable for theater makers as it is for the concert touring industry.

A Look at Working in the Theatre: Chamber Opera

Stage Directions
Today the American Theatre Wing posted a video about Chamber Opera which shows some captivating production work as it looks at this unique genre of theater making. As the American Theatre Wing notes, "We may never be able to fully distinguish the difference or even grasp the true union between opera and musical theatre, but in this episode of Working in the Theatre, we learn how the two genres really do play well together to expose an audience to storytelling that engages emotionally through sound patterns and music. And excitingly so, Chamber Opera (to some just called opera) as shown through the lens of a theatrical experience has the ability to be created and shown in so many different and wonderful ways."
