How sound sets the stage, an interview with Jennifer Walden
JW: Can you tell me about your overall design strategy on Yeh Ballet ?

Sound seamlessly connects different spaces and events, and helps to shape the sub-conscious narrative underlining a character’s emotions. In my early discussions with the director, we wanted to use sound to bridge spaces, showing Mumbai’s diversity and interconnecting socio-economic differences.
