SOUND: VISION

Inspired by PULSE, the RPS joined forces with arts charity IdeasTap in a new initiative which offered five young filmmakers and five composers the chance to create their own short film/music collaborations.

In Sound:Vision, each pair of young artists were brought together by the RPS and IdeasTap and awarded £1000 to bring their creative visions to fruition; the final films were shown in 2014 at an autumn screening in London.

The composers/filmmakers, selected from over 100 applications, were:

  • Royal Academy of Music MMus graduate, composer Ed Scolding, collaborating with Guildford School of Acting graduate, Peter Groom.
  • Former Britten Pears Young Artist and Sound and Music ‘Portfolio Composer’ 2013 Sarah Lianne Lewis, and London College of Communication BA Interaction and Moving Image graduate Christopher Lutterodt-Quarcoo.
  • Composer and orchestrator for film, theatre and television, Theo Vidgen, and Oldham born Sophie Barrott (currently a student at California State University).
  • Young composer Joe Jackson from Merseyside, and Oxford University English graduate and young theatre director Chloe Wicks.
  • Royal College of Music student Dani Howard, collaborating with Italian documentary filmmaker Victoria Fioravante.

Graham Sheffield, Director of Arts, British Council: Nobody could ever have invented the RPS. I love it for the support it gives to musicians, and for its commitment to an inspiring future for music.

In early Philharmonic Society concerts, players often rotated within their orchestral section, reflecting the orchestra's wealth of performing talent as well as its democratic ethos: no ‘distinction of rank’.
