NOTE: The lyrics in this recording were just a reference for me to compose to and not in the final recording as they were performed live in the show.
I included them here as I feel they help make sense of the music.
Messy was a family show that was made to be accessible to d/Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing audiences. One of the original performers in the show was deaf and so music had to be bassy and with a steady beat in order for them to pick up the rhythm.
However, as all the performances were relaxed we could not risk any of the music triggering sensory overload or panic attacks etc. A lot of this came down to the final mix and leveling but was also something myself and co-composer Laura Thompson had to consider.
These two tracks were composed by myself.
