Vision Sound Music
Welcome to Vision Sound Music - the UKʼs first festival of music for visuals. Bringing together music, games, film, advertising and brands to London's South Bank Centre on September 2nd, 3rd and 4th 2011.
Video games from Heavenly Sword to Little Big Planet are taken to the next level by music. In film, from classic scores like Bernard Herrmannʼs Psycho to the smart soundtracking of Scorsese and Tarantino, music is an essential dramatic component. Brands and adverts from Enoʼs Microsoft jingles to the Cadburyʼs drumming gorilla, are at their best with music in their heart. And in the digital space, from OK Go’s treadmills to Kutimanʼs YouTube collages, music makes visuals come alive.
The three days split into:
Taking place across the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Royal Festival Hall on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, VSM Nights is three evenings crammed with specially commissioned performances, talks and events celebrating the meeting points between vision, sound and music.
