A Collaboration on Stage with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

"At the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, we have always considered sound a key element in the performance itself," shares audio engineer Russell Cowans. Joining the company in 2011, Cowans quickly learned that almost every element of the production is given artistic attention, much like the dancers themselves. "Each detail must come together to compliment what the movement on stage is trying to convey. Every decision we make for the sound system goes to support that end vision. For audio, that means everything from volume level, allowing the dancers to feel their movement and be energized by the sound, all the way to equipment proportions, so as not to interrupt the sight lines to the dancers. It is about the whole package coming together, and it is amazing to work with a company who gives priority to that."

In the 1970’s, while he was a student at the University of Colorado, Director Lee Aronsohn fell in love with the music of the Boulder Revolution and the band Magic Music. Since the band’s break up in 1976, any trace of their music has been virtually impossible to find.

To preserve the integrity of the band’s original performances for the film, Production Sound Mixer David Griesinger used a selection of microphones from DPA Microphones.
