"Somebody once said that the problem with theatre is that it’s all in long-shot; the things that I do try and bring it into close-up."
Paul explains his definition of sound design as ‘a dialogue with the director’, discusses working collaboratively with prolific directors such as Rufus Norris and Stephen Daldry, and reveals how, despite not being an innate technician, doing an arts degree gave him the training he needed to be able to speak to them as peers. He describes how sound often operates at a subconscious level for an audience, the need to be honest and objective about the spectators’ experience, and why The Royal Court is a sound designer’s perfect theatre.
