Foley is a class of sound effects that are performed, usually for film soundtracks but with origins in radio and live theatre. It will be quite a useful skill in upcoming TWO productions!
We will discuss what Foley is and why it was invented, how to perform it, how to amplify or record it, and, most of all, how to think about Foley in the context of live performance.
