Now an understanding between the director and myself has been found regarding creative desires and needs, I now turn to think more specifically about the musical styles for this production. As with most theatre productions that I write for, the music will take several formats. These formats include  sound effects (which are usually recorded), recorded music and live music.

Both the recorded and live music is further divided into underlying atmospheric music (designed to enhance the mood of a given situation),  thematic music (designed to announce certain characters or activities), songs (often sung by one of the performers but may also be performed by myself) and functional rhythmic music (designed for use with movement and action scenes).
