Michael created a special extended version of the The Lost Thing score to accompany the film live. The new show made its debut on the opening night of the 2011 Dungog Film Festival. This was followed by gala performances at TEDx Sydney and the Graphic Festival (in the Sydney Opera House, supporting GOTYE - yes, that Gotye!).
Michael was joined onstage by Damian De Boos-Smith, Veronique Serret, Shenzo Gregorio and Bree Van Reyk.
