Summary:Theatre composing job
Deadline: 19 August 2019
Date Posted: 15 August 2019
Details: I am seeking a musician composer to join the core creative team for a two week R+D of a new non verbal puppet show taking place at Space Six in Newcastle upon Tyne

Necessary dates are 26th Aug - 6th September with two scratch performances taking place on the 5th and 6th at Queens hall Hexham and Alphabetti Theatre respectively.

Fees are £483 pw with a further £1000 for composition and recording fees (total contract of £1996) with recording to take place after Sept 6th with deadlines to be agreed.

The piece is a dark fairy tale for adults and younger audiences around power and responsibility about a village and their resident dragon.

Due to the nature of the work we are looking for an occasionally powerful and haunting sound track with a flavour of dark/middle ages and have been looking at piano, cello and harp as starting points. However the R+D process will be open to inspiration and expertise.

As the music will be the responsibility of the post holder multi instrumental skills and ability of self looping will be highly advantageous.
