Guy Webster Sound Designer

In the lead up to the launch of Blue Bones by Merlynn Tong we're keen for everyone to get to know the all star team of creatives we have working to bring this story to life.  Meet Guy Webster the genius behind our Sound Design.

Guy Webster HeadShot

Professionally, what’s your goal?
In my professional practice I aim to satisfy my own obsessions with music and sound while assisting the truth of the story to shine through.  
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Go for the crescendo.  Even if you think it's in the way.  I still struggle to achieve this without thinking, 'I see what you are doing there'.
What’s your favourite art work?
This is not possible to narrow down to a single work:

Rodin - Crouching Woman;
Brian Eno & Harold Budd - The Pearl;
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme and Ascension 1 & 2,
Paul Vo - Wond.
This is a potentially very long list but I will stop there
What themes do you pursue?
Truth, justice and how to make it feel like it is really there
How has your practice changed over time?

In my early career, I was dancer and folk singer.  Now I just make silly noises and try to sit very still.

Guy works across the mediums of theatre, dance, sound art, installation and new media. During his early career as a dancer & choreographer Guy developed his practice as a composer and musician.  His work has since featured in theatres, festivals and galleries throughout Australia, Japan, Europe, UK, USA and China and his live performances have shared the stage with the likes of Beth Orton, Ed Harcourt, Powderfinger, The Cruel Sea, Mad Professor and Sarah Blasko.  Guy has created music and sound for many theatre & dance works with Queensland Theatre Company, Sydney Theatre Company, La Boite Theatre Company, Shake & Stir Theatre, The Brisbane Festival, Bleach Festival, Dance North, Jute Theatre Co, Backbone Youth Arts, State Library of Qld, Out of the Box Festival, Shock Therapy, Lisa O’Neill, Goat Track Theatre, Stella Electrika, Wilde Applause & Red Shoes. Guy is also a founding member of new media performance and installation group, The Transmute Collective.
