Soundpainting Workbook 3 for Theatre and Dance by Walter Thompson (PDF 40 MB)

Soundpainting Workbook 3 – The Art of Live Composition for Theatre and Dance by Walter Thompson. Workbook 3 is a comprehensive study of the Soundpainting language comprising 135 gestures pertaining to theatre and dance. Workbook 3 is divided in Sections 1 and 2 with a direct relation to the gestures of Workbook 1 and 2 for Musicians. Though many of the gestures of Workbook 3 are the same as the gestures of Workbooks 1 and 2 the difference is they specifically address how the gestures are used with actors and dancers. Workbook 3 also includes additional gestures and concepts specific to theatre and dance. Workbook 3 includes a DVD showing how the gestures are signed and the responses they produce. Members of the The Batik Soundpainting Orchestra (BSO) perform on the DVD. At the end of the DVD is a performance where Soundpainter Eric Chapelle (Soundpainter for the BSO) joins Walter Thompson in the composition.
