Cast Album Producer

For both the preservation of musical theater history and entertainment value, the producers of a Broadway or off-Broadway musical regularly commission the production of a cast album for new shows and popular revivals. Occasionally live performances are recorded and produced for sale as albums, but more often, the entire cast and orchestra are brought to a recording studio to lay down tracks.

Sound Designer

The work of a sound designer in the video game development industry is not dissimilar to that of film and television or live production. Both are charged with establishing the overall aural aesthetic of the product, but the game sound designer does not work from a single established script; rather he or she creates an auditory world that changes, evolves, and is manipulated through the player’s experience.
