The Secret Life of Theatre Music Composers: Theatre music composers have possibly the most challenging task in their industry - to create the equivalent of an album of original material which suits the play it will accompany. The music is experienced 'live', but only for as long as the length of a season, and is almost never recorded for sale… and it all has to be done in a matter of weeks. Julie Hill speaks to some of the talented folk who create soundtracks for stage in The Secret Life of Theatre Music Composers.
And hear a session from Dunedin originals The Puddle.
