…almost at a pace that I can’t keep up. I have never composed so much in so little time in all my life. It’s very exciting. The music is so far working out to be very text-led. The players and singer have to follow the pace and rhythm of spoken text, rather than the more conventional method of rhythmicising text to fit musical metrics. It puts more strain on the brain of the players, I think, but ultimately will lead to something that it much more alive and less constrained by beats and bars. (well, there aren’t any of those.)
Here’s a promo video that Nick made for the production.
