The last one I posted was from a theatre piece I did last year, called "If you give a mouse a cookie...", based on the children's book by the same name. This is yet another piece I composed for that show. It's called "Jungle Adventure." For those of you who didn't listen to "Scaling the Fridge", first off, shame on you, hehe, second, you remember that it was basically like scoring a cartoon. Every line choreographed, timed and scored to tailor-fit. Very fun project. Thank god for Looney Tunes. Was quite a good lesson in orchestration as well.
In this scene the little boy is trying to get the mouse to fall asleep by reading him his comic book entitled, 'The Adventures of Jungleman.' While the boy is reading the story, hoping the mouse will fall asleep, unbeknownst to him the mouse is behind him reinacting the whole story as he is telling it. The hero of the story, alongside his pet elephant, Leon, strolls through the jungle only to find danger. He faces evil crocodiles, manages to slip away, but in a run of bad luck comes across his mortal enemy, the evil King Constrictor. Jungleman fights King Constrictor mono e mon...uh...snako. They battle it out tossing and turning in the water until the snake slithers no more. Jungleman has triumphed again. Just as he is celebrating he hears a rustle in the bushes. Jungleman is ready to strike. But he laughs with joy on to see it is only Leon, checking to see if he was safe. All is well in the jungle thanks to Jungleman.
Hope you enjoy. Thanks for listening.
P.S. For those who missed it, here is 'Scaling the Fridge':
