Abstract

'Happy Families' is a drama dealing with sexuality and the navigation of complex relationships. It was directed by Arno Crous, written by Claude Baskind and stars Charles Reston, Ciaran Lonsdale and Orla Jackson. The music commission involved a competitive process of over 30 composers.

The research process interrogated the literature on synaesthesia, making novel applications in the music to convey sensory modalities such as touch, and sight as well as sound.
