Isabelle Tarran- Music Director Extrodinare
Updated: Feb 1, 2021
Hello there! My name is Isabelle Tarran and I’m one of the Co-Directors of Music Production here at Digital Dramatics. Some of you may recognise me as Lord Voldemort from A Very Potter Musical on Zoom, but when I’m not terrorising muggles and denying my feelings for a certain Hogwarts professor, I’m just your friendly neighbourhood Music Director!
My Digital Dramatics journey has been amazing so far. I joined the company when Cassie, Anna and Justin held auditions for AVPMZ on TikTok, and I was fortunate enough to be cast! I was originally cast as Crabbe, and since I didn’t have many lines to learn, that gave me the free time to step up and take on the role of Music Director, along with my incredibly talented friend Isaac! Together, we created all the backing tracks for the cast to sing along to and also mixed all of the songs you heard in the show. Between that and directing vocal rehearsals, we had a lot on our plates. But, it was so worth it, because the show was TOTALLY AWESOME!
From AVPMZ, I made so many amazing new friends, and I was so excited when we decided to carry on with Digital Dramatics.
We are currently working on our second show, which is going to be a Cabaret event! I can’t tell you any of the songs yet, but I can tell you that I’ve been hard at work creating backing tracks and arranging harmonies! It’s already shaping up to be an amazing event. All of our cast members are so talented! Not to mention that the Quirrell to my Voldy is directing, and Hannah is just such a joy to work with!
Outside of Digital Dramatics, I am a music student and a singer/songwriter. I write and record my own original songs, which you can listen to on my SoundCloud. Two of them, “Don’t Call” and “Tear The City Down” have been played on BBC Radio Merseyside, which is really exciting for me! There’s nothing cooler than being able to turn on the radio and listen to your own song.
Recently, I co-wrote a song with Carta Inc called “Before I Fall,” which is available to listen to on all major streaming platforms. Also, I know a lot of our fans are from TikTok, so I thought I’d let you guys know that the song is also available as a sound on the app. Just search “Carta Inc” and select “Before I Fall” to use the sound.
The song was recorded completely in isolation over lockdown, which is similar to how we worked on AVPMZ. I was sent the original track, and then I wrote the lyrics and the melody to go with it. I then recorded the vocals and sent it back to Craig. With AVPMZ, Isaac and I sent out the tracks to the cast members, they sent us their vocals and then we mixed them. So, the two projects were actually quite similar! Working collaboratively on this single and on AVPMZ was so fun, and I hope to be able to continue collaborating with other musicians in the future.
Well, that’s all from me for now! If you want to hear more from our company members, keep checking this blog, and if you want to stay up to date on everything that I’m up to, check out my website:
