Our Live Entertainment projects for this year include Survivor: Live!, created by two longtime partners of FatLab Music – Joey Wartnerchaney of Manhattan Creative Group and RWS & Associates Entertainment – and scored by me.
RWS, under agreement with CBS Television, is producing the first-ever live entertainment adaptation of the Emmy Award-winning television series, and I was thrilled to contribute the music.
The show involves audience volunteers presented with various physical challenges. For the show, I wrote an expanded theme song adapted from Russ Landau’s iconic “Ancient Voices”, plus all-new tribal/hip-hop arrangements of “369 (feat. B.o.B.)” by Cupid, “Galang” by M.I.A., and “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child.
Two parks open their productions today – Denver’s Elitch Gardens and Oklahoma City’s Frontier City – with Buffalo’s Darien Lake to follow May 23. Performances are four times daily thru the end of each park’s summer season.
