WHAT IT FEELS LIKE

Score by Alex Burnett

"The well thought out soundtrack only enhanced and never eclipsed the performances of the actors and at times made it feel like watching a high budget TV drama."

- EdFringe Review

 

"Supported by an excellent original score, which had the woman sitting next to me in tears by the final scene, I cannot not recommend this play enough."

- DamoWords Fringe Blog

 

The score for What It Feels Like took a narrative approach to composition, using two levels: the soundscape for the dream-like world of the coma and the emotional, thematic layer where lemotifs for the characters develop as the story progresses.

 

Inspired by research into near-death experiences, composer Alex Burnett experimented using a technique of frequency and resonance stretching of audio to create new and unique sounds that would give a sense of surrealism. The result is something moving, epic and deeply cinematic.
