    This is the opening sequence of Giles Perring sound design and score for The Matchbox by Frank McGuinness, which premiered at The Liverpool Everyman in June 2012 and which won the prize for Best New Play in the 'Whats On Stage Awards' in 2014. Set on Valentia island, Eire, it's a story told by a woman who has lost her only child to a random unrelated act of gang violence. The play won universal acclaim when it opened as did the production by Lia Williams and the incendiary performance of leanne Best as sal, the sole character. Giles Perring made extensive use of field recordings and foley recorded near his studio on the Isle of Jura for the sound design, while his minimalist score featured a performance by Melanie Pappenheim. The Matchbox is due to open in London in 2013. You can watch a video of production stills and press cuttings here
