Music and images: a Sound Tracks Ticket Grab
This is a chance for all you good EIFF-goers to grab a pair of tickets to any of the following Sound Tracks events, free!
The weekend is on its way, and we're staring early with a ticket grab offer to get your toes tapping on the Festivalhouse dancefloor.
Tickets for the following events can be collected from the box office by quoting 'SOUND TRACKS GRAB'. Take one for yourself or bring a pal, we'll give you up to two tickets per person.
Domino Cut & Paste
Ever wanted to make sweet music but just couldn't find the right partner? Let Domino show you the way with this opportunity to network. Head of Synchronisation at Scotland’s most innovative record label (Franz Ferdinand, The Kills) and publishing house, Lynden Campbell, will show just how it’s done by editing Domino music to film. If you’re looking for a guiding hand, just send a quicktime file to firstname.lastname@example.org to unlock the cinematic potential of your own work. But be quick, it’s at 3pm today! This will be followed by a no doubt heated discussion led by Music Supervisor Vicki Williams and musician Steve Mason (formerly The Beta Band) about music copyright.
After, at 20:30, Domino-signed Pram will also be providing the music for this delightfully spooky combination of early cinema techniques and shadow play. Crafted by visual artist Scott Johnston, Film Ficciones is sure to transport you to a heady world of dreams and images and may even raise a hair or two.
Ten Tracks: Music Pictures
Music videos need not necessarily be a showcase for the scantily-clad as these ten brand new visual interpretations of Ten Track's best music will prove. If you too believe the music video can be an art form, then this one is for you. Live accompaniment will be provided by each of the artists making this an electric event.
Club Night: LuckyMe
As an obscure singer and oracle once sang, "Let's Dance." A club night for those passionate about film and willing to surrender their feet to some filmic beats. Audio-visuals will be provided and top young VJ LuckyMe is a given, just bring yourself, a couple of mates and a party spirit. Sense of rhythm is optional.
See you there!
