Domino: Cut & Paste
One of the most innovative independent record labels and publishing houses gets its teeth stuck into soundtracks, and gives them a good shake.
Responsible for artists such as The Kills, Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand, join Domino’s Head of Synchronisation, Lynden Campbell, as she edits Domino music to film whilst talking through the pitch process from the perspective of an in- house synchronisation team. If you have 60 seconds of film that you would like to see edited to Domino music at this event submit a quicktime file to firstname.lastname@example.org by 22nd June. Alongside Music Supervisor Vicki Williams and musician Steve Mason (formerly of King Biscuit Time, Black Affair and The Beta Band), Lynden will then invite a frank discussion about what music rights holders and film producers demand from music uses in film, commercials, games and TV. This exciting collaboration, new to EIFF 2011, began as an animated discussion between Domino and the EIFF programming team about the lack of opportunity for musicians and filmmakers to network, and the keen awareness of musicians that film is a valid and creative platform for their work. In fact, this electrifying conversation kick-started the Sound Track extravaganza you see on the pages today. Soundtracks are a filmmaking statement, from Nino Rota’s scores to Fellini and Coppola, the always anticipated new Bond track to the inimitable Coen Brothers sound. With the growing prevalence of popular musicians such as Nick Cave, Jonny Greenwood and this year’s Oscar® winner Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, for his score to The Social Network, eagerly lending their talent to moving image, now is the time to put a spotlight on nurturing this relationship.
