Modern beats wed silent films in an electrifying live performance.
Collaborating with Edinburgh’s notoriously exciting Tinderbox Orchestra, Moving Music celebrates EIFF’s commitment to breathing life into archival content. We’ve asked Tinderbox Orchestra, Edinburgh’s foremost youth orchestra, to react to silent film musically. Find out what happens when contemporary beats and silent film merge in this unique live performance, with young musicians scoring the silent shorts The Ring, from the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive, and Looking for Lucey, a University of Edinburgh archive project run by MSc Film, Exhibition & Curation students.
Expect to be stirred, shaken, and moved as these musicians blow up some serious dust!
