Since then, London's music scene has been a liferaft for Marshall, a musician who now runs a group of small concert venues with his wife. Growing up in south London, he'd endured racial slurs and regular beatings because of his Pakistani heritage. His uncle was killed in a racially motivated attack; his mother was a heroin addict. But the music scene they know and love may soon be unrecognizable because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has plunged the U. Live music venues have been forced to shut doors for nearly five months — and scores are at imminent risk of permanent closure. According to the charity Music Venue Trust, which represents grassroots venues, more than across the country are in crisis.

Network News Music features news theme music from the broadcast networks, much of which has never been heard in its entirety. In an effort to highlight the wonderful qualities of the music and its composers, you can listen to the music in the way it actually was not intended to be heard: without voice-overs or fade outs to commercial. For their theme music, they turned to Matthew Kajcienski. However, executives wanted to completely steer away from anything orchestral to set it apart from the competition. This presented a significant challenge. Composers often turn to at least some elements of the orchestra to help propel those feelings of gravity, drive and power in news. The ABC election theme for the midterms takes advantage of a full orchestra, electronics, and massive percussion section to convey a renewed sense of importance and urgency. Trumpet fanfares, snare drums, and soaring string melodies more in tune with an olympic event, are replaced with a more serious drive and balance the line between urgency and optimism. Several challenges arose, including how to approach the new sound with such a long-lasting previous identity. ABC wanted a sound that would not only attract the millennial generation, but would still embrace the loyal audiences while carrying Nightline into its next chapter.
