MISGUIDED MUSINGS

 

It’s been a while since I updated you on what’s been happening down under. So time to let you know of a great opportunity that arose to play in a mini TV Series titled ‘Misguided’. This involved writing the theme music for the show and playing the improvised background music for each of the 13 scenes. The series is all about improvised acting with suggestions coming from the audience (hence the misguided part).  This then builds each week on a story line with 4 characters along with improvised music that is performed on my keyboard. Playing improvised music is my specialty, I felt right at home!  Each actor was informed by the audience of the scene to be acted out. My job was to improvise with the music to bring the feeling and atmosphere out as it was happening, thus creating inspiration for the actors.

 

THE CHALLENGE

 

Now this is the kind of challenge that adds some sparkle to life! It was heaps of fun and travelling to Melbourne City each week for months. It created a team atmosphere as all involved were getting to know the cast and crew better each week. Creating the right piece of music takes a bit of imagination, but then again, you are not held to any particular limitations either. Inventing a theme for each actor/actress was part of the process, so that they had their individual musical ditty. Making music is what it’s all about and this sure was a great experience! It was also loads of fun creating the theme music, giving this comedy series a fun yet funky and catchy tune that will leave an impression.

The goal for me personally is to diversify things, which was achieved and this was one to really remember!

Till we chat later…
