Eye on Sound

On the vital relationship between film and sound

Eye on Sound: live music in Eye's arena during Museumnacht 2013

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.

Short Scores

In Short Scores, we playfully push at the boundaries of film music. We asked a new generation of musicians and composers to create new mini film scores to accompany a short piece of film of their choice from Eye’s collection.
