The following are a few examples of Amy’s original music from the ABC TV Comedy, “8MMM Aboriginal Radio”. All music composed, recorded, produced and mixed by Amy Bastow.
During 2014, Amy composed and produced music for brand new ABC mini-series 8MMM Aboriginal Radio, a comedy about a community radio station where “black and white mingle to create a place that is anything but black and white”. 8MMM Aboriginal Radio is produced by Brindle Films and Princess Pictures (Chris Lilley’s Summer Heights High, Angry Boys, We Can be Heroes; and Peter Hellier’s It’s a Date). 8MMM Aboriginal Radio is due to air on the ABC in 2015.
8MMM Aboriginal Radio is a fictional story about a struggling community radio station in Alice Springs (where the entire series is filmed). The station runs on the smell of an oily rag, the enthusiasm of its motley Indigenous crew and the misguided intentions of the whitefellas in charge. For the 3M’s of Alice Springs – the missionaries, mercenaries and misfits – saving Aboriginal people from themselves is hard work. Especially Aboriginal people who expect to be heard on the radio and in the office. Princess Pictures and Brindle Films bravely step into the vortex of Aboriginal Australia, where truth and comedy collide. (excerpt taken from australiantelevision.net).
