School of Theater
Head of Sound Design: Jon Gottlieb
Directed by sound designer Jon Gottlieb, the Sound Design Program is devoted to a rapidly evolving field that integrates aesthetic concerns with scientific disciplines and new technological tools. The program can stretch as far as each student’s energy and imagination allows.
Although the curriculum is rooted in text-based theatrical training, sound designers take part in additional projects in experimental theater, multimedia and interactive design and production, concert sound reinforcement, performance art, animation, and live-action film and video. Accordingly, students are strongly urged to utilize all the resources, both artistic and technological, available across the entire CalArts community.
