FLOPSTAR launched in August 2004 and as such has yet to release commercial recordings.
As a musical producer I have composed music for various TV productions such as
Miss World Beauty Pageants which are aired to aprox 2 billion viewers


Feeling a bit camera shy


FLOPSTAR is unique in that we perform multi - genre songs in the form of a 75 min musical comedy, both celebrating and taking the piss out of pop. Half the songs deal with songwriting and the creative process and the other half are stand-alone radio friendly songs in various genres. FLOPSTAR is entirely influenced by my life experiences from the fringes of showbiz:

Peter Greenwall

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Peter Greenwall graduated from the teach-yourself-school-of-music and as such did not go on to be Musical Director on any Broadway or West End show. Besides the music prize in grade 5, he has not won any major awards, produced any hit records, nor did he tour with any successful pop group or orchestra. He prefers to ‘work on his own stuff’ specializing in composing wonderful songs that nothing ever happened to.

As a sound engineer in Sun City South Africa, The Lido in Amsterdam and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, he arranged backing tracks for cabaret artists no one ever heard of, as well as a few original scores for specialty acts on their way to nowhere in particular. He also wrote original scores for fringe musicals, none of which went on to achieve international acclaim.

As he is not acknowledged as one of the most innovative and inventive composers around, his music may be heard on exercise videos, staff motivation programs, corporate theatre, Cape Town’s failed 2004 Olympic bid and most recently, vandalizing the chart topping hits for the ringtone market, currently his main source of income.
His original scores for numerous Miss World Beauty Pageants, A Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony and an original score for Sun City’s extravaganza would thus be considered the highlights of his career.

Since the songwriting-for-popstars thing didn’t work out, and he’s not a dentist, he thought he’d use his experiences from the fringes of show business as inspiration for FLOPSTAR, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and transferred to London’s Kings Head Theatre shortly afterwards
