Brighton: Symphony of a City
Genre: Orchestra 188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206/perc.timp.pf/str
Description: A multi-movement score evoking the city of Brighton from dawn to dusk, in response to a silent film by Lizzie Thynne
Duration: 45 Minutes
The film creates a dynamic portrait of Brighton today, and in its dawn to dusk and then night approach consciously references Walter Ruttmann’s great rhythmic and poetic film ‘Berlin: Symphony of a Great City’ (1927). The music conveys colour and contrasts, echoing those of the modern urban environment, but constantly aware of seascape.
