A little early I know, but I couldn’t help myself. I’ve created an “unofficial soundtrack” to the debut production of Déjà Vu. I know what you’re thinking (or at least what I’m thinking), the play hasn’t even been performed yet! But I’ve created this playlist because it is a collection of the music that is inspiring the writing of the play, and for anyone who wants to get a feel for what Déjà Vu is going to be about, listening to this playlist will be a good place to start. I have selected a variety of my favourite Aussie music, Something For Kate, Sarah Blasko, and Nick Cave just to mention a few. Australia has produced some incredible musicians over the years, however a lot of these musicians are not known outside of the land down under. This playlist is a showcase of some the best Australian music talents.
I’m a fiend for music, always looking for new music to explore, and something that I love to do is create playlists. Like Rob in the Nick Hornby best seller “High Fidelity”, I not only love music but I love to collect it, sort it, and piece different songs together to create a message. Then again, sometimes I don’t have a message. Sometimes I just want to create a “tangent” of emotion. Tangents are something that I know pretty well, seeing as I have a habit for going off on tangents. Look I’m going off on one now about – a tangent about tangents! And as the play Déjà Vu is all about tangents of time and fate intersecting each other in the same moment of time and distorted pieces of memory that are being overlapped and underestimated in their significance because of an ongoing case of deja vu, I thought what could be better than creating a playlist that is the backing music of not only my tangents, but the tangents that are inspiring the play!
