Transcript of Abe Jacob

Abe Jacob By RJ Anglin
Advanced Tech Theatre About Mr. Jacob He is known as the "godfather" of contemporary theatre sound design. He started his career mixing sounds for stars such as Jimi Hendrix, The Mamas and Papas, and Peter, Paul, and Mary, and he also designed the sound system of the Monterey Pop Festival. He virtually created the sound designer position. And he still actively designs. School He attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Style Big Sound- not loud, not distorted, but a powerful aural experience that empowered not just rock and roll theatre on Broadway but also subsequent eras of the director/ choreographer and the megamusical. Why I enjoy his designs. I enjoy his style because he makes sure every seat in the theatre hears what the sound is like at its source.
I also enjoy his style because he was the first. He pioneered sound designing. Credit Hair
