MUSE2MUSIC Event Pairs Film and Soundtrack on May 31st in Los Angeles
What happens when you bring three visually stunning silent films into a room of twelve gifted music composers and ask them each to come up with a no-holds-barred original soundtrack?
This is exactly the question the Association of Music Producers (AMP) posed its members when developing Muse2Music, a celebration of original music in collaboration with moving imagery ~ the “muses”.
The result? A dozen different ways of storytelling, and a groundbreaking film festival event to debut their work.
The muse material was curated from three LA-based artists and produced by AMP’s Andy Snavley:
* Time lapse imagery combined with stop frame animation from visual artist Joel Fox was intercut into a profoundly beautiful film called “secret life of time.”
* Renowned cinematographer Tom Richmond lensed a striking view of travelers on Los Angeles freeways in his film “Commuters”.
* Rounding out the trio, graphic artist Augustine Kofie invited a camera to follow him around the studio as he combines elements of silk-screening, collage, and painting for an upcoming gallery exhibit. The resulting film “Accumulating Process” was assembled by editor Lee Cowan.
The composers have been given total creative freedom. The works of Alex Gibson, Andy Snavley, Donny Dykowsky, Jack Shenker, Johannes Hammers, Jonathan Still, José E. Éboli, Josh Good, Justin Hori, Liz Myers, Nathan Kil and Randy Lee will be presented on May 31st at the Muse2Music premiere. You will be amazed at what your ears can see!
The event will take place at the Casa de la Suerte in LA. Doors open at 7pm. Drinks, tapas and a DJ will entertain moviegoers and music buffs.
The event is open to the public. Tickets are available now at www.ampnow.com
