Title Theme Composer Wanted

I am looking for a Title Theme Composer for the audio project ‘Laura Falls’ – an episodic detective story in the noir style.

Note; While applications are encouraged from as broad a cross-section of composers as possible, given the nature of this project, preference will be given to blind or low vision applicants.

The story

Laura Falls has been murdered and her sister Wendy is missing.

William Borough is asked to investigate Laura’s unsolved case files to determine if the clients in those cases may be possible suspects in her disappearance.

Each episode is devoted to a case file.

Using flashbacks, we hear the interactions between Laura, Wendy and the client, as well as any relevant details.

Towards the end of the episode William asks why the case was unsolved. And in a final flashback we learn of the status of the case and why Laura abandoned it or why the client terminated the job.

The Project

This is a joint project of Radio 2RPH and Bryan Cutts, who is the director and executive producer.

  • An initial five (5) episodes will be recorded, produced and aired on Radio 2RPH (Sydney)
  • It is intended to air the series in NSW and Nationally.
  • The episodes will be made available digitally as podcasts
  • It is anticipated that this will be an on-going series

He’s Fallen in Sydney Harbour!

Here’s a treat for all those Goon Show fans who have been eager for more of that special brand of British Comedy… a special twilight Sydney Harbour cruise with The Goon Show LIVE!

Join the lads cruising Sydney Harbour on the Rhythm Boat for their special twilight show, featuring three watery original episodes from the BBC series.

Laugh out loud when Little Jim falls in the water, taking The Famous Eccles, Bluebottle, Neddie Seagoon and the rest of the Goons on their nautical (or naughty) adventures.

All your favourite Goon Show characters will be featured including those conniving cads Grytpype-Thynne and Moriarty, and our beloved idiotic couple Henry Crun and Minnie Bannister.

The Goon Show LIVE! is the perfect blend of situation comedy, radio theatre and absolute lunacy all rolled into one boat-rocking giggle-fest!
