    music for Theatre "House of Yes"

    Hi all,

    More theatre music!

    http://www.samgreene.com/music.php

    This one will be lo-fi - in a community theatre. A nice chance for me to make an attempt at another style without feeling much pressure.

    The play is about a screwed up family with a daughter who wants to be jackie-o.

    The idea i had was a juxtaposition of "happy 50's/60's plucky strings/bells" and a brushed drum kit and bass. by "happy 50's/60's plucky strings/bells" I mean that music that would play on 'documentaries' about communitites back then...i don't know if anyone knows what i'm talking about.

    I'm considering getting a real drummer (opposed to myself) to do the tracks - my playing is a bit off....i was pretty happy with the trumpet- although i'm a bit off tune on a couple notes.

    Anyway, from GPO, the piece contains - pizz strings 1, trombone overlay, grand symphonic marimba and Harp.

    I enjoyed this very much.
    I've seen the movie, and it was very entertaining/tragic/hillarious.
    I think you capture the "edge" of what's going on very well.
    I didn't get much of the "Happy", but it was juxtaposed, I just suppose.

    yeah...i started out with the happy idea, but it never came through(just stuck with the instrumentation)...came out pretty melancholy. I'm gonna give it another try with the happy/trite feel.

    Cool, man. I like the bit at the very end where you've got the dotted eighth / sixteenth line over the straight 4 feel of the drums. Kind of a catchy way out of it.
