The First Child, Least Like The Other


David Sheppard is a sound designer who has collaborated on a diverse range of projects across the world. He works with many leading orchestras and ensembles as well as rock and pop musicians, visual artists, dance and film creatives. He collaborates closely with composers on helping them realise their ideas but he is also known as a sound installation artist and electronics performer in his own right. Last year he worked on the first ever Augmented Reality opera, Current Rising with the Royal Opera House, and began developing new performance experiences utilising d&b Audiotechnik’s Soundscape. INO incorporated this in its 2021 tour of Brian Irvine and Netia Jones’s Least Like The Other — Searching for Rosemary Kennedy. At the start of 2022 he curated and produced Immersive Fields, a brand new festival of 360° audio and visuals and is currently working on a 90-minute sound installation for Tour De Moon, a three-city festival celebrating UK culture as part of the nationwide Unboxed celebration during 2022.
