Cracking Up

Cracking Up is a BBCR4 sitcom that I wrote and produced and was broadcast in 2017. The aim was to give the music the feeling of being a character in itself and to define the quirky and off-kilter nature of the series. I’d been listening to (and marveling at) home-keyboard demos posted on YouTube and recorded the tracks with natural room ambience to enhance its spontaneous and eccentric atmosphere. A second series has been commissioned for 2018.
