Marat/Sade: Ceremonious Music

img_0154This track is from our production of Marat/Sade. (more here). In this scene the character make their first entrance, and the Marquis de Sade takes his “throne”. The content of the play is still a little vague at this point, so it has a little optimism to it.

I started with the little guitar riff for this track. Next came the drums, and then the harmony (played by two alto saxophones in the live production). The guitar riff was doubled by a flute player, and the drums stayed in the electronic track. The track ends with Sade taking his seat and the play-within-a-play begins.
