The Lift - A Promenade Theatre Performance

I joined Wet Picnic Theatre for a week to help them redevelop their outdoor promenade piece 'The Lift'.  Together with collecting, editing and designing the soundtrack, I also needed to create a custom playback system to enable the performers to navigate tracks from both inside and outside of the lift seamlessly.

It was the first time i'd approaching  creating a playback system like this, but ended up using the Sparkfun MP3 trigger board where I could attach individual trigger buttons placed in the lift to trigger the sounds by the performers on the fly.  I used two 15 core data cables soldered on to Dsub connectors to send 12 trigger inputs back to the MP3 board built into a panel on the lift.
