Eye on Sound
On the vital relationship between film and sound
Eye focuses on the dynamic relationship between sound and vision in different thematic programmes. Together they are Eye on Sound, a series on the importance of film sound and (live) film accompaniment.
What would Sergio Leone’s films be without Ennio Morricone’s world-renowned scores? And what remains of Blade Runner without Vangelis’ unworldly synthesizers? Who doesn’t immediately think of Miles Davis’ languid nocturnal jazz in the case of Ascenseur pour l’échafaud? Music and sound are an essential part of the cinematic experience. In fact, they are vital to the experience of film.
This year, Eye puts the spotlight on Ryuichi Sakamoto, one of the associate artists of the Holland Festival 2021. Sakamoto's latest dance performance Time will premiere during the festival, Eye will organise seven accompanying programmes in June.
Experience historical film scores played by classical instruments, newly written scores to recently released films performed by contemporary musicians and live performances to follow the screening of contemporary classics or theme specials.
