about

Written for The Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2013 Production.

All music composed by Joe Payne ©2013. Sung live by Melinda Parrett (Ariel), Cate Cozzens (Juno), Melissa Graves (Ceres), Kaitlin Mills (Iris), Corey Jones (Caliban), James Newcomb (Stephano), and Roderick Peeples (Trinculo). Production demos performed by Joe Payne and Eliza Wren Payne.

Inspired by Fever Ray's self titled album, I used steel drums, marimbas, and tribal percussion throughout this score to set the stage for a Caribbean magical adventure. My direction was clear: BJ wanted the audience to hum the songs while leaving the theatre, to push the boundaries of "modern" music and melodies, and to make Ariel and the Goddesses sound haunting, beautiful, and sexy. Moreover, I wanted to make this world rich with magic and ambient texture. Every enchanted moment of Ariel and Prospero were enhanced by sounds both musical and ethereal. Monsters followed Caliban and the drunks, while breaths of wind accompanied Ariel, who's voice echoed throughout the space. A challenging and rewarding production, beautifully performed by magnificent actors.
