Treasure Island

The Dukes summer park show is an outdoor theater experience that has been running for 60 years and is attended by thousands of people each year. It was a great experience to work on such a mammoth project with a great cast, outdoors! I worked in conjunction with another composer, Carol Donaldson, where she composed the music for the six songs in the show of which I then produced (instrumentation, adding other elements in, mixing etc). I also composed all the incidental music (underscoring fight scenes, journey music between scenes etc) and sound designed all the effects

This track is from one of the journeys between scenes where the audience were led through brilliantly lit path with this music playing through a series of speakers taking them to the final scene.
