What Musical Instruments Would the Crew Play
Travisina
This thread is inspired by the lovely picture by Lurena of Vila playing the violin (or maybe the Vi(o)la - he liked the similarity to his own name!). You can see the picture here:
http://www.blakes...owstart=60
and on the September ficlets thread.

There was some discussion on both threads as to whether or not it would be his instrument of choice, so I thought I'd start a thread to speculate what instruments other crew members would play. Here are my ideas so far:

Vila - piano accordion. I can picture him in a Western-style bar, playing racy or sentimental ballads while others sang along.

Cally - theremin. It has a wonderfully weird, other-worldly sound, perfect for an alien

Gan - percussion.

Avon - grand piano. I picture him in black tie and tails, playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata to a rapt Servalan.

Any other ideas?

Blake - electric guitar and vocals
Avon - synthesiser (something like a Fairlight CMI or a Moog)
Vila - accordion or drums/percussion
Cally - theremin, definitely
Gan - bass guitar
Jenna - flute and (possibly) vocals
Orac - drum machine
Zen - sampler

I could definitely see Avon playing the violin.
Vila would play something simple like the banjo
Jenna would play the piano
Blake or Gan would play the trombone
Cally would play a harp
Didn't we see Dayna playing an instrument in Sarcophagus?
Tarrant would be a drummer.
Soolin would play the flute

So we did! Dayna would play whatever that was - a small harp, or lyre. She'd be on vocals, too.

Blake - Saxophone (I hate that instrument!)
Avon - Grand piano, with a Beethoven bust and Jenna leaning seductively against the instrument ... oops, sorry, wrong series ... but seriously, instead of a Beethoven bust he would have a glass of a superior red wine.
Vila - Violin. As I said in the other thread, it makes perfect sense to me. However, without Lurena's and LittleSue's story I would have suggested the triangle (shades of Pvt. Baldrick?)
Gan - Drums.
Jenna - Recorder. She learned that as a little girl. Later on with all her smuggling and piloting she didn't have the time for learning another instrument.
Cally - Auron harp. I bet there are harps on Auron. If you have ever seen Meret Zloch playing the harp, you will know that this instrument is also suited for her more violent companions-for-my-death days!
Tarrant - Banjo.
Dayna - Lyre (as seen in Sarcophagus).
Travis - Trombone.
Servalan - I haven't yet made up my mind. Are there any deadly instruments?
Orac - Theremin. Somehow he will be able to play it. After all, he is a genius. (Thank you, Travisina - this was one of my first thoughts but I can never recall the name of this instrument!)
Soolin - I hadn't thought about her, but I like Meegat's idea of her playing the flute. I am now trying to imagine Soolin balancing on one leg.

Vila would play the ukulele. Cally would play the theremin (seems this is the most popular choice), and Blake would play guitar and sing gloomy folk songs. Jenna would be his backing singer, Gan would be on bass or rhythm guitar, and Avon would be a synthesiser wizard like Tony Banks and never speak. Tarrant would be a flashy guitar player and Dayna only plays the lyre because it was the only instrument they had when they ran away and her father insisted she learn. That leaves Soolin to play drums.

For some reason I can picture Avon playing the flute!
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Reading this thread brought to mind the BONZO DOG (DOO-DAH) BAND - 'The Intro And The Outro' - record!
Harold Wilson is playing the violin!!!!!

Although I posted that Vila would probably be good at the drums in another thread, I could see him playing the harmonica. Seems to suit him.

Jenna- flute.
Cally- harp.
Avon- grand piano
Blake- English horn
Gan- Cymbals
Tarrant- Kazoo
Soolin- Recorder
Dayna- 357 Magnum or how about clarinet

Vila, known on the blues circuit as "Restless Restal" carries around an old beat up Gibson. Gan used to join in regularly with the harmonica, but after he passed on to that great Star One in the sky, he was left alone. Dayna joins him in on a bittersweet duet every once in awhile. Soolin books him at all her clubs and joins in with a mandolin every now and then. Cally the woman who stands up in front and sways to the music even during intermission. He once let Blake play the drums; Jenna was better. He kicked Tarrant offstage when he attempted the drums. Now, he just asks Orac to do it. He and Avon collaborated on a jazz-blues experimental 30 minute recording wherein Avon proved he had the skills of a top rate jazz pianist and you can hear Servalan's throaty vocals in the background.


All of his original recordings were lost with Orac, which has yet to be recorded although there are a few bootleg recordings around.

Thanks! My first Blake's fic.
 
Lurena
Hey, I hadn't seen this thread before! Must have started when I was away from the Internet.
Very nice and interesting.
Thanks Travisina for starting the thread.
I am still convinced that a violin suits Vila for that reason that he is intrigued by all instruments and tools that need a special kind of dexterity. Besides, Vila is not at all a fool, or the ignorant he likes to appear.
Of course he would be playing ukelele just to match his assumed Delta being.
I need to muse over the other crew members, but I think I can imagine Avon singing very well (perhaps only while taking a shower).
I also can imagine Avon playing Suling (melancholic bamboo flute).That instrument needs a certain state of mind; keeping yourself away from your emotions...
Dayna springs into my mind too. I think she's perfect in percussion.

That's really outside the box, but I could see Avon doing that.

Hmmm, not sure, apart from we already know Dayna plays the Lyre, Blake needs to play something where a lot of wind is required, and Tarrant is likely to be the lead singer. Wink
 
Anniew
Avon Theremin. Tarrant the spoons.

Mrs B keep writing!
