                                                                         ★★★★

gorgeous sound design by Julian Starr masks the transitions, enabling the flow. The sound also helps subtly drive the undertones of the piece.

                                                BroadwayBaby, Reviewer Richard Beck

                                                                       ★★★

Assisting in that department is a sensuous and mystical sound design from Julian Starr

Flick Flick City, Reviewer Felicity Anderson                                                                     

Julian Starr has smashed it out of the park with the sound design, music reverberating through the crowd - encouraging us to whoop and holler through fight scenes

Night Writes Sydney                                                                   

Starr's selection of pop and hip-hop inspired soundscapes which heightened the impressiveness of these scenes.

                                                British Theatre Guide, Reviewer Sandra Giorgetti

                                                                       

During scene changes, pacy, atmospheric music (sound design and composition by Julian Starr) hints at a growing urgency

                                                BroadwayBaby, Reviewer Christopher Kelsey

                                                                       ★★★★

Julian Starr did the sound composition but also composed a lot of the music in the play. The added tense music to the clinic scene bought a level of tension that had not been present in the jaunty music we had heard thus far.

London Pub Theatres, Reviewer Saul Reichlin

                                                                                                     ★★★★★

sound design and direction by Julian Starr and Rhiannon Drake, respectively, enhance the mood and the story wonderfully.

                                           The Reviews Hub, Reviewer David Guest

                                                                ★★★★★

the haunting music (the spirit-filled wind of heaven of the play’s title) composed by Julian Starr and Rhiannon Drake – herald angels or the sound of a blessed community opening its hearts and minds?

                                           Church Times, Reviewer Peter Graystone

                                               

The simple staging features gorgeous Welsh singing, part of Julian Starr’s rich sound design.
