    a sounding music that are one and the same thing From Reich Steve Writings on Music 1965 2000 Ed Hillier Paul OUP 2002 Pg 34 35 This could easily have been written about London Road You can read more about the process of the creation of London Road here In an totally curtailed summary It is the faithful transcription of recorded conversations and interviews into music and then the development of that material into musical numbers The idea itself is perhaps not as original eg the already long history of documentary theatre and sound artists who work with similar material processes as many of the reviews have made it out to be but what is continually fascinating about this technique is how clearly and prominently you can perceive this process during the performance In London Road the process even goes so far as to invade the performance when one of the original recordings that has already been presented in its theatrical form is played This moment had a number of effects not least of which was to reveal the extent to which the original speakers had been deeply interpreted and impressed upon the audience I felt as if the words were being spoken by a friend or other close acquaintance a sort of ah yes that little mannerism in their speaking that I m so familiar with So what is it about London Road that has struck audiences so deeply My first thought has to do with the development or more precisely I think the deepening of characters in the show There isn t the traditional sort of character development in London Road Instead the experience of hearing their words in music and hearing them come back again and again is more like getting to know somebody over a number of years I found myself developing opinions about and empathy for each of the characters couples and I genuinely feel that if I went to London Road today I d be able to recognise them This is similar to the way a TV show can start to feel like real life after watching too many episodes in a single space of time The payoff here of course is that London Road is a real place and that the people I know are real as well There is also the way that the perceivable process of this show gives the audience such an obvious insight into the virtuosity required by its performers When we can hear what the playwright composer and performers have had to do to bring the show before us we become aware of just how much it takes to pull it off so well This is unusual as normally it is precisely the most difficult things are made to seem effortless in performance This is true of the theatre and concert hall but perhaps most obvious in a sporting analogy where those who have tried for example to hit a golf shot kick a football or hit a

    learning curve In particular I was struck by the need for absolute excellence and clarity of musical notation I was many times very grateful for guidance I had found in Elaine Gould s Behind Bars along with time to think about in particular the challenges of changing musical metres in theatrical settings I had been tripped up by my experience of concert pieces where the conductor is immediately visible to all involved In such a context changing metre can actually be helpful to musicians trying to count bars In the theatre though I am now convinced it is better at least in a limited rehearsal situation to set up a time signature and bring in the singers around the clock as it were Perhaps the most striking part of the week was to be let into a different world of terminology and thinking I realised that I tend to think about my work as a composer as one of making decisions and answering questions This is the note that is the dynamic etc The question for the composers after each rehearsal was How was that Are we getting closer This sort of question would be asked differently in the theatre The question isn t Have we said more of the right words Mr Beckett but rather one of drama and audience experience The directors and playwrights weren t reproducing answers they were making choices and asking questions What happens if he turns over the box and the balls fall out What if she pulls the scarf through her hands before putting it on What if the nun picks up a megaphone That one may actually have been in the score but it was so fantastic I had to include it The entire experience has challenged my own process and left
