Original Music

Outside of his work in bands, Moray also produces music as a solo musician in a variety of different styles. In particular he has produced original music for several theatre productions by local theatre companies. A more complete library of his solo work can be found on his SoundCloud page.

Return To Wonderland

An entirely new production, this new adaptation of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass was commissioned by director Charlotte Howard and written by local writer Alison Farina. Taking place shortly after World War I, an adult Alice is haunted by memories of her life at the front as a VAD nurse, until she spies her younger self in the looking glass and travels back to Wonderland. Performed at Christmas, the show incorporated song, dance, puppetry and pantomime physical comedy around the story, and Moray set two of Lewis Carroll's poems to music, sung by members of the cast during the show. He also composed a short ballet sequence on the theme of remembrance for the climax of the story.

Romeo and Juliet

This production was set in the early 80s and Moray produced two original pieces of music to represent the Montagues (punks) and Capulets (new romantics). This was used alongside other music from the period. Listen to both of them below.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Set in the Victorian era where the industrial progress of the Athenian people threatens the natural ways of the fairies, several original pieces of classical music in the appropriate styles were used for the dance sequences, scene changes and as an overture to the whole play.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

This production of Glyn Robbins' adaptation was extended to include two dance sequences set to original music - a ballet style section for the change of seasons (The Flower Dance) and a more brutal sequence preceding the death of Aslan (The Sacrifice). A more contemporary piece was used to illustrate the childrens' journey into Narnia (Through the Wardrobe).
