Music Education Student Composes Score for Theatre MSU’s “The Tempest”

Eli Denson, first-year BME student and guitarist, composed the score for Theatre MSU’s “The Tempest,” whose performances run from April 11 to April 13, 2019 in McComas Hall under the direction of Tim Matheny.  For this production of William Shakespeare’s play, reimagined and set in the 1930’s with a strong influence from the American Dust Bowl, Eli’s score consists of background and transitional music, plus several songs, woven together with a recurrent melodic phrase and rendered electronically.
