Com­poser Keys into raw cool

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

Keys (pic­tured) re­lied heav­ily on a voice recorder for in­spi­ra­tion as The In­evitable De­feat of Mis­ter and Pete’s com­poser. The songstress ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced and cre­ated mu­si­cal ar­range­ments for the drama, which stars Jen­nifer Hud­son. The movie, di­rected by Ge­orge Till­man Jr, is about two chil­dren who are left to their own de­vices af­ter their re­spec­tive moth­ers are taken into government cus­tody. Keys said she found com­pos­ing for The In­evitable De­feat of Mis­ter and Pete to be a par­tic­u­larly unique pro­fes­sional chal­lenge. ‘‘This (ex­pe­ri­ence) was par­tic­u­larly dif­fer­ent be­cause I was on the road,’’ she said. ‘‘I would send Ge­orge ideas, themes, thoughts, lit­er­ally from a voice recorder that I emailed to him. Ac­tu­ally, that was kind of raw and cool and be­cause this film has that raw cool el­e­ment to it, I think it gave us the po­ten­tial to start our di­a­logue from that.’’
