Katie Popperwell will need to approve that you worked on “Music + Film ” before we add you as a collaborator.

Music + Film

In 2016, HOME presented an eclectic season of silent cinema accompanied by soundtracks from the city’s most innovative musical talent.
Combining the immediacy and energy of live performance with the magic of the big screen, Music + Film saw Manchester musicians creating original scores for early 20th century silent cinema, archive footage and artist film.
Singer-songwriter Josephine Oniyama got to grips with synths and sequencing for her score to HAXAN; , Dutch Uncles songwriter and bassist Robin Richards worked with an orchestra for Lonesome, and Mercury Award nominees GoGo Penguin created their now legendary score for Koyaanisqatsi. The project gave these artists the opportunity to explore the relationship between live sound and image, with many of them scoring and arranging for film for the first time.
