So I am massively loving my job today. As art director for Lumiere Digitale I research and create concepts for what we make work about, what the animations and physical performance will be based on, and also how it all looks. I’m also responsible for other areas of styling such as music and costume.
Music is a big part of my life so I’m very excited about creating the sound track for the Lumiere Digitale at the Old Courts show I am interested in exploring a place where old meets new, creating classical images using modern day technology.
I love classical contemporary music as well as experimental electronica, and it’s really exciting finding a soundtrack within these genres to set the show against. Someone who has a very similar taste in music to me, but vastly more knowledgable is Ed Williams
Ed Williams is a consultant and producer working with events, music partnerships and media relations. He has worked at Red Bull Music Academy, Glastonbury Festival and Resident Advisor - the global authority on cutting edge electronic music. With a deep passion for music that reaches from classical to dance and beyond, Ed is working with Lumiere Digitale as a Music Supervisor, making recommendations that reflect visual and dramatic elements with a musical counterpart.
Ed and I are working together to create the soundtrack for the show. It’s great to be working with him, he has a great understanding of what I want to create and getting musical selections coming to my inbox is even better.
I can’t disclose too many of our choices yet, but Max Richter is likely to feature heavily!
