Hello!

So I'm looking for some suitable curtain call music for my production of MSND - I don't want it to be too folky, but I'd like it to be upbeat and positive, given that the ending is like that :)

Any ideas? Preferably instrumental but doesn't have to be!

How long? Something classical? Have you listened to Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream? Here's the Overture:



What kind of production? Is there any other music?

Well, I have a cast of around 20 or so, so it needs to be long enough to allow them all enough time to do their bows and then a final bow altogether at the end. My production is relatively contemporary, using music from Hybrid (Disappear Here, Choke, Until Tomorrow) and the Piano Guys (Arwen's Vigil) and Jon Hopkins (The Wider Sun) throughout - I think Mendelssohn's overture wouldn't really fit with the rest of the music that's been used earlier throughout the production as its a lot more classical than what will have gone before.

OK, so a little eclectic... Here are some ideas:

Way Out West - Spaceman

(The beginning is slow so start a minute or two into the song)

Zero One - Transformation

(The beginning is slow so start a minute or two into the song)

Junkie XL - Mushroom


Something from Emergence maybe:



Are these in the neighborhood?
