The Light Burns Blue: An interview with Jake Bright
Jake Bright – interview
composer jake bright has been working hard in the rehearsal room, devising the music for THE LIGHT BURNS BLUE. here, he explores the process of scoring a piece of devised theatre, working COLLABORATIVELY with the young company, and tells us what we can expect from the show…
Can you tell us a little bit about the role music plays in The Light Burns Blue?
I’m always trying to work out how to enhance the drama and characters onstage – what they’re thinking, where the story’s going, how the characters feel. That’s the most important thing for me, capturing the moment. Since the whole piece is about a series of photographs, I guess that’s quite a good philosophy!
How do you even begin to approach the process of scoring a play – particularly one that is devised in the rehearsal room?
