d&b Soundscape elevates the Berliner Ensemble for Threepenny Opera’s return home.
For each scene of the Threepenny Opera, sound designer Holger Schwark created a comprehensive snapshot of object positioning using En-Scene. This software allows the individual placement and movement of up to 64 sound objects so that each sound object corresponds both visually and acoustically. In addition, the automation software En-Snap is utilised, this program was designed alongside Gareth Owen, and enables a straightforward cue-based control within the d&b Soundscape environment, connecting directly to the d&b DS100 Signal Engine.
“We have already seen a huge difference in our sound,” explained Voss. “This installation will allow a larger audience to appreciate productions at the ensemble for years to come.”
With d&b, the current production of the Threepenny Opera will enrich the Berlin Ensemble's repertoire, not only that the team has committed to utilising Soundscape as the production tours various locations, not only in Germany but beyond.
