Dingus radio production

“As his eyes drew points of colour into focus they settled upon the silhouette made by the angular inflection of the back of a tailored jacket, worn by the woman it had been tailored for, and how the tailor had dreamt it would be.”

Taken from ‘Dingus’, written by Mike Cooter, a ‘classic’ 1940s detective six episode radio series I’m finishing the soundtrack for right now.

Just so many minute lovely details in the script. Broadcast TBA.

Dingus

Between Christmas and New Year I find myself diving into the Dingus universe with a warm welcome back like visiting and old friend. Familiar voices and places I’ve been to before. I composed all music to this radio series earlier this year and now I’m finishing off the arrangements, as we are disappearing into the studio mid-January to record the soundtrack with a six piece big band style ensemble.

‘Dingus’ Radiophonic Soundtrack

Boom! In three days time finished scoring out roughly 109 segmented variations of 8 different themes running through 6 Dingus episodes. Arranging next week. I will be needing brass and string players to record it all at some point. Musicians who know how to play ’40s film noir style in a soave manner.

In this nice hot Summer weather is suitable to be working on a Spanish theme.
