This is a beta page for the management of Improverts Technical for Fringe 2006. Obviously, I'll be watching this page like a HAWK, a HAWK I tell you, for rogue edits and I'll be laying the smackdown on anybody who tries any sabotage. Meanwhile if you have constructive edits, this IS a wiki. Get to it.

Help me find tracks for all of those music-needing moments in an improverts show. The "got this?" column refers to whether I've got it, not you. If you've got it and I haven't, let me know.

Theme Tracks
Theme Suggested Track When you might use this theme Got this?
Heroic/Sad Adagio For Strings A hilarious re-enactment of the bit where all the soldiers get shot GOT
Sinister Classic "It Only Gets Worse" music required
Horror Psycho Theme For playing when someone is actually getting stabbed or something HELP


Many of these games have themes already, but maybe we can update them a bit. If you know of a game that isn't listed, LIST IT! Because I sure as hell don't have a list.

Suggestions welcome (we do have an intro for Space Jump, after all
Space Jump
Space Jump Intro
Emotional Rollercoaster
Suggestions welcome
Two Genres
Suggestions welcome
Sports Commentator (?)
Grandstand (or can we do better than this?)
Should Have Said
Has a kinda freestyle jazz intro, suggestions welcome.
Traditionally doesn't have music. Time to change that?
Games that already have themes that really don't need to change

The Team

If you want to join the team, I suggest you email me at rather than editing this list directly - you won't end up on the email list I keep in a secret place on my secret webserver and thus will probably miss out on some important announcements in the future.

Will be scheduled to operate the lighting desk
Will be scheduled to operate the sound desk
Has expressed an interest in learning tech and will be scheduled to second desks in the first few weeks (hopefully operating later)
Insufficient time to train, will be called on to folo, and maybe second a desk occasionally

Preliminarily, desks will be scheduled with two operators for any one show. The operator will usually be familiar with the equipment and with the nature of teching an Improverts show. The second may or may not have the same familiarity, and should have the chance to learn in order to operate later in the Fringe.

A preference implies that you will be able to handle operating the specified desk on your own.

Anybody can second any desk, and nearer the Fringe I'll be trying to timetable people onto desks that they are particularly interested in messing with and/or learning.
