Truck II - Liftoff Sequence
00:00 / 00:00

Sound used in this show was run off of QLab running off a laptop hidden in the center console of the 1990 Chevrolet Suburban, triggered via a MIDI controller by the driver seat actor, and was sent to 1990s computer monitors mounted on the dashboard. A boombox played cassette tapes, the voice of the Truck came over a walkie talkie from a voice actor in a car parked at a different site. A three-way phone call between the Truck, the actor playing the moon and the voice actor allowed for show feed to reach the other two actors. The baby unit of a baby monitor sat on the dash, and the parent unit was given to the people sitting in the back row of seats in the truck for added audibility.
