Sound and vision set to collide

An exclusive one-day exploration of the collision between music and moving image will take place on Friday November 22 as part of this year’s Foyle Film Festival.

The ‘Sound and Vision’ day at the Nerve Centre will explore the part music plays in television, films, and computer games, as well as giving screenings of the Chemical Brothers’ live film Don’t Think and the French documentary Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, directed by Turner-prize wining artist Douglas Gordon, and live scored by Glasgow rock band Mogwai, who also wrote the soundtrack for Channel 4 mystery drama The Returned.

The event has been organized by Generator NI, a new three-year music industry development programme for Northern Ireland, in partnership with Honeycomb - Creative Works.

Ross Graham, Generator NI project director, said: ‘Our everyday experience is increasingly coloured by the interplay between music and moving image – in film, games, ads, YouTube, you name it, the music, interactive and screen industries continue to converge. This Sound and Vision programme examines some of the most creative collaborations and collisions.

‘The event will also give an invaluable opportunity for artists, labels, managers and digital content creatives to meet, network and learn together.’
