“Survivor: Live” opens today

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, Inc. — 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 arranged all-new tribal/hip-hop versions of “369 (feat. B.o.B.)“, M.I.A.’s “Galang“, and Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor“.

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.
