Nightshade's Theme - more music inspired by The Last Chance Hotel

A few weeks ago I shared with you Seth's Theme, a brilliant piece of music from talented local composer Ollie DN. Well, he's now written a theme for Nightshade, and like Seth's Theme, it was inspired by reading the book and imagining how Nightshade might feel if she was a piece of music.

The thing I love about this is how the instrument, and slinky feel, and even Nightshade's movements seem to be captured. And all in a two minute piece. Have a listen and see if it conjures up your image of how Nightshade behaves:

Another huge thank you to Ollie. One of the most amazing things about being a writer is realising that not everyone imagines the characters in exactly the way you do. And when they share their thoughts and feeling back to you - whether in a piece of music or a drawing - it's the best feeling in the world!

Hope you enjoy listening.
