RPS/IdeasTap Sound:Vision competition

26 Jun 2014

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

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

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

- Royal Academy of Music MMus graduate, composer Ed Scolding, who will collaborate 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 Barratt (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 Danielle Howard, who will collaborate with Italian documentary filmmaker Victoria Fioravante.

Mark Pemberton, Director, ABO: Membership of the RPS is invaluable in ensuring I tune into wider thinking on the state of classical music in the UK today.


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’.
