Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Royal & Derngate, Atlantic Screen Music and Phantom Limb present a new charity compilation album: INCIDENTAL: Music For The Stage.
Over the past decade, Royal & Derngate Theatre has commissioned 12 of the most influential composers working today to write original music for the stage – including Number 1 selling musicians White Lies, Guy Chambers and These New Puritans; Oscar and Grammy award winning film composers Rachel Portman and Anne Dudley; leading opera composer Orlando Gough, British Bhangra pioneer Kuljit Bhamra and ground-breaking classical and electronic composers Isobel Waller-Bridge, James Johnston, Bedroom Community's Valgeir Sigurðsson and 2020 Ivor Novello Award winner Renell Shaw.
This charity compilation album presents their original compositions inspired by some of the most famous plays and novels in the English Language, featuring spoken performances by many of the stage’s most acclaimed actors. It raises vital funds to support Royal & Derngate Theatre’s reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, helping the venue to recover from the devastating impact of a year of enforced closure and enabling the venue to continue to produce their ground-breaking Made in Northampton productions.
