reviews

“An eclectic soundtrack by Oonagh Sherrard features terrific variety.” The cello music “skilfully accompanies Mothball’s escapades with an atmospheric layer which combines composed music, dramatic modern string effects and even catchy riffs or rhythm guitar like barre chord strumming. This gives the wombat star an exquisite voice which is totally appropriate for all aspects of Mothball’s joie de vivre. Personality traits from the laid back to hectic are covered musically.” Sydney Arts Guide on the music for “Diary of a Wombat” Monkey Baa Theatre Co 2017

Live cello composed by Oonagh Sherrard  “accompanies Mothball’s every movement creating character beautifully and setting a wonderful sense of atmosphere to the point that the need for dialogue becomes redundant.” Talking Arts on the music for “Diary of a Wombat” Monkey Baa Theatre Co 2017

“The cello provides soundtrack to Mothball’s every move, sound emission and her scuffles with the humans, negating the need for a human narrator in what is essentially a wombat’s story.” Weekend Notes on the music for “Diary of a Wombat” Monkey Baa Theatre Co 2017

“Oonagh Sherrard created a spine tingling musical score that contrasted cleverly with the lighter moods of pop songs” Absolute Theatre on the music for Circa/La Boite “When One Door Closes” 2016

“cellist Oonagh Sherrard… has composed an Arabic-influenced soundtrack which matches the rhythms of Bani’s stories perfectly.”                                                             The Daily Review on the music for Urban Theatre Project’s “The Tribe” 2015/2016
