How do you describe what it means to be a resident sound designer? I think the job description varies with each theatre. I have been resident at two different theatres in my career so far, and each has had a very different view of what they wanted from me, a view that evolved and changed over time.
The job description tends to fluctuate with the needs of the moment. At South Coast Repertory, I was hired as the sound engineer and was told that I would likely not be designing any shows.
