The Count of Monte Cristo

Category: Sound Design

Design Statement

The Count of Monte Cristo is an epic tale. Marcela Lorca, the director was interested in revealing the depths and variety of the human spirit in the course of an epic adventure filled with friendship, revenge, humor and love.The original script is written in the style of melodrama, the production team aimed to embrace this style of story telling. The language and the movement of the piece were heightened and the design elements needed to support this style. The play was written during the Romantic Era, I wanted to reference this time musically and also bring a contemporary motion to the rhythm .
There were live musical elements in addition to the recorded music that are not reflected in the archived material. These live elements were often sung and were a combination of original and found/arranged music of the time from French Folk tunes to Opera. Most of the transition music and underscoring is original music composed as part of the sound design for the production. I wanted to choose instruments from the time period and also ones that had a wide range of emotional expression. There were also three large dance sections in the production, drums were featured in the first two that were influenced by the pounding of the waves. The scenes in the Pont Du Guard have a humorous sort of "silent movie" feel to them.
Thank you for your time. - Sarah Pickett (Sound Design & Original Music)
