| A select collection of original work:
The Nether, The Wayward Artist
"The River" was created as part of TSDCA's Fall Creative Challenge and then presented to various members of the Theatrical Sound Designers and Composers Association. Maddi Deckard collaborated on a team with Joseph Gherardi and Isabel Waldie. The River, a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson, inspired the piece. Maddi sourced sounds and created the arrangement with initial mixing. Joseph did all field recording and completed the final mastering. Isabel worked on the musical instrumentation and the voiceover.
