How to make music for musical theater
“You are free to do what you want as long as it doesn't turn into a concert.”Composing for musical theater is quite different than making an album or performing a concert in the sense that the music you are making should support the scenes, story and overall production rather than just stand out from the rest by forcing it's own personality into the performance. That being said it doesn't mean that the music made for theater can't be developed into an album. Over all you are free to do what you want as long as it doesn't turn into a concert. There are no rules but maybe just one, the music isn't about itself alone, it's about the project.
