Here's an excerpt from a new piratey work-in-progress tune. Nothing is panned yet and the mix hasn't been worked on as I'm still writing the music.
More to come.
It's for a new musical, opening scene as follows:
Lone treasure chest sits at bottom of deep hole in the ground on a small caribbean island. Hero climbs down rope to reach for chest but rope isn't quite long enough. Hero reaches as low as he can, only inches away from grabbing the handle. Evil villain jumps out of chest, hero falls off rope, sword fight takes place. Hero pins down and ties up villain with rope. Hero's "damsel in distress" appears in typical cheesy fashion and begins to sing. Hero considers situation. Hero changes his mind, unties villain, says "I'm not doing the hero thing anymore, take the wench and yer treasure. I'm off". Hero exits. Villain and damsel look bewildered and sing a duet about what to do now that hero has broken the rules of piratey adventure stories.
