& Juliet

Known for crafting audio for musicals such as Bat Out Of Hell, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, and Sister Act, Sound Designer Gareth Owen recently worked his magic on the Broadway hit, & Juliet. As a completely self-taught audio designer, Owen has always aspired to incorporate the best techniques and high-end equipment into his workflow. Now a seasoned professional with countless musical credits and awards, Owen’s work on & Juliet recently earned a 2023 Tony Award nomination for Best Sound Design of a Musical. For his microphone needs, Owen relies on his DPA Microphones solutions, which for this show include the 4066 CORE Omnidirectional Headset Microphones, as well as the 4015 Wide Cardioid, 4099 Instrument and the new 4055 Kick Drum Microphones.

A long-time user of DPA, Owen regularly turns to the brand’s 4066 CORE Headset Mics for cast members. When it came time to consider mics for the drum kit, Owen found himself testing out DPA’s new 4055 Kick Drum Mic. Beyond the 4055, Owen also outfitted the ride cymbals and hi-hats with DPA’s4015 Wide Cardioid microphones.
