Hearing the Image, Seeing the Sound: the Importance of Synesthesia in Cinema
Why is John Williams and other composers of epic scores considered the "classical" musicians of modern times? What would Star Wars be without the iconic music? Why do sometimes we a see a film and the music instead upstages the story and is ill-fitting? The delicate art of scoring music for film or writing diegetic musical number is often under-appreciated by many who have concluded that film is just about image...however, ever since the days of the Silent's...music has always been utilized to convey emotion and meaning. What exactly is sound design?
Stephen Trask, the Grammy nominated musician for his work on the musical Hedwig and The Angry Inch, will discuss his process in collaborating with John Cameron Mitchell for writing the film and how flawlessly the dialogue blends with the music to create the powerful resonance we experience when watching.
Sound designers and composers Donna Kavanagh, Manifesto alumni all the way from New Zealand and new member of the festival family with his short, The Overcoat, composer Jetse De Jong, will join in on the discussion and also take questions from the audience.
