Been spending a good chunk of time this weekend partnering with the boys on music for the big climactic song for this year’s FronteraFest entry. They’re using the software Ableton Live to create tracks and beats to fit the overall feel of the script.
I don’t know that it’s going to be the most memorable piece of music in the history of theater, but it sure is satisfying to have them be a part of it.
I’ve got two of the actors in the three-person drama committed, and I’m working on one more. We’re going to meet for the initial read-through at the end of the month, if all goes well.
Whatever happens, I love the thought of these guys listening to the project they put together and having the audience react. Another new creative collaborative phase for us. I’m totally ready to go on tour with these dudes as soon as I get my chops back in shape…
