Wanting to introduce Ben’s music to Pippa and Benji at the production meeting, I sent Ben a scene with some lyrics, and asked him if it was possible to come up with some sort of mood or melody. In fact he came up with a whole song.
A word from Ben himself about the project: “I'm pleased to announce I'm currently writing the music for what promises to be a dark and beautifully harrowing musical theatre production called HOAX by graphic novelist Ravi Thornton. I will be creating the music on stage from scratch using loops of piano, vocals, synths & glockenspiels. Here's the very first demo of a song which is to be sung by the lead actress, called This Dark Man.”
