Nick DePinto

I am drawn creatively to the impact that sound design has on a theatrical production. I thrive in a scenario where my collaborative contribution can shine through with emotion and clarity. In my practice as a sound designer or engineer, I use audio to enhance the storytelling and assist the director in delivering the sonic elements of their thematic vision.As a sound mixer, I can affect the live performance in a more immediate way while still utilizing my design sensibilities. In effect, I become a member of the ensemble: a performer in the production. It is a closer connection to the medium through the real-time acoustic manipulation of each performance.Nick has worked as a Sound Designer and Engineer with theatres nationwide, including: Musical Theatre West, California Theatre of the Performing Arts, Rogue Machine Theatre, LA Opera, Cal State LA, and more (Los Angeles); Pittsburgh Public Theater, PICT Classic Theatre, and more (Pittsburgh); Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre (Colorado); and St. Michael’s Playhouse (Vermont). He holds an MFA in Sound Design from California Institute of the Arts and a BA in Theatre Arts from the University of Pittsburgh.
