Tom Gibbons Sound Design

"...and the nerve-jangling intensity of Tom Gibbons's sound. " Guardian review of Happy Days, Young Vic. 

Tom Gibbons is a London based sound designer and composer specialising in creative and intelligent sound design for theatre, dance and performance arts.

He has been nomnated for Best Sound Design at the Olivier Awards 3 times, winning in 2016. 

Tom works at theatres in UK and internatioanlly. He has designed shows at venues in the West End and on Broadway, as well as the NT, Almeida, Young Vic, Old Vic, Royal Court and Barbican, among others. 

"As a sound designer and composer I work in close collaboration with the director and creative team to find the best use of sound and music on any one project, whether that is to create atmosphere, show narrative or support character and the other design elements of the performance. As well as creating sound and music playback that can transform a performance space, I also work extensively with cast and crewmembers using live amplification and musical instruments. This is often done in the rehearsal period with the cast, so as to avoid a ‘bolted on’ feel in the final performance.."
