Last Friday the great people from Whirlygig Cinema hosted another Making Tracks event at Rich Mix in London. This unique event showcases short films accompanied with a live musical score by The Cabinet of Living Cinema. For this event one of my short films, Cardiff City Kings – highlighting the breakdancing scene in Cardiff - was selected to take part. All the audio was removed and an extract of the film was prepared to be re-scored live.
Cardiff’s breakdancing and graffiti scene are exploding with energy and talent and I’m glad one of my films can highlight and represent our dancers to a new audience. In a couple weeks the music created by The Cabinet of Living Cinema will be available online and I’ll add it as an update to this post.
In the meantime, have a listen to a podcast explaining what Making Tracks is all about and why it’s important to filmmakers. You’ll hear Katie Steed, founder of Whirlygig Cinema chatting to the musicians and a couple of the filmmakers involved in the January 2012 Making Tracks event.
