If you’re going to put music and visuals together, try to do it the Richard O’Brien way and create a genre busting, cult classic like The Rocky Horror (Picture) Show. In conversation with Richard Hartley, who provided the musical arrangement for theatre and film productions, Richard O’Brien will discuss the memories, mayhem and approach to creating some of the most enduring and iconic musical moments in cult cinema history.
Further festival highlights include Blacktronica's Charlie Dark performing his re-imagining of the soundtrack to the classic Brazilian film Black Orpheus live, Adam Buxton hosting the best of BUG 2011, a night showcasing some of the year's most awe-inspiring music videos and Iain Lee hosting the London Philharmonic Orchestra's performance of Video Games Heroes, a history of video game music. For the more daring, Sound Of Fear presents a history of horror film music on Saturday night.
Vision Sound Music is the UK's first event of its kind, a three day festival celebrating the unique relationship between audio and visual cultures. Focusing solely on the meeting point between music, film, advertising and games, Vision Sound Music will be an extraordinary place to learn and experience the ways in which music and sound elevate visual culture.
Taking place at the Southbank Centre on 2nd, 3rd and 4th September 2011, Visions Sound Music is produced in partnership with the creative agency Fallon, the video game festival GameCity and Sound and Music (SAM) the UK's leading organisation for contemporary music and sound art and the talent management agency Pulse Films. The festival is presented in association with Music Week and supported by the Music Publishers' Association, the Musicians' Union and PPL.
Festival director Andrew Missingham, comments:
"Video Games from Heavenly Sword to Little Big Planet are taken to the next level by music. In film, from classic scores like Bernard Herrmann's 'Psycho' to the smart soundtracking of Scorsese and Tarantino, music is an essential dramatic component. Brands and adverts from Eno's Microsoft jingles to Cadbury's drumming Gorilla, are at their best with music in their heart. And in the digital space, from OK Go's treadmills to Kutiman's YouTube collages, music makes visuals come alive. It's high time music's essential role in all visual culture is celebrated"
As well as exciting evening events, Vision Sound Music aims to provide an unparalleled business to business opportunity for members of all visual industries connected and enhanced by music to discover the latest ideas and technologies within the sync community. The festival will be a platform for all people who make content for which music is an integral part, to exchange knowledge and challenge current industry models.
