Stuff goes out
After a crazy mid-year period of actually doing work, time has come for much of that work to go out into the world.
Bespoke aired the last of three episodes last week, and seemed to be very well received, garnering some fantastic reviews nationally and a tweet from Albo calling it "Our national broadcaster at its very best." The 3 part series investigates the resurgence of the handmade in recent years and called for an eclectic and funky soundtrack.
Sex With Strangers, a stage play starring Samuel Johnson (from The Secret Life of Us) and Tottie Goldsmith (The Chantoozies) opened in Hobart last week and had a 5 show run. The show had already toured Victoria extensively, so it was great to have it arrive well-polished and in such great shape. I flew to Melb for two days of rehearsals in June, then had to turn around the soundtrack in a couple of days. I'm really happy with the result and got to give the guitars a workout, which is always a plus.
Red Racing Hood from Terrapin Puppet Theatre opens at the Backspace Theatre this Friday after touring the state extensively. Again, it'll be nice to open with the show well cooked. It also affords me the opportunity to re-do some stuff I felt could use a tweak, which is not something that I always have the leisure of. Can't wait to see it with my kids!
