Eye on Sound

On the vital relationship between film and sound

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

In various thematic programmes, Eye focuses on the dynamic relationship between film and sound. Together, these programmes make up Eye on Sound, a series about the importance of film sound and (live) musical accompaniment.

With Eye on Sound, Eye focuses on the special relationship between image and sound. Expect live music to silent films, live bands from today to classics of yesteryear, brand new scores to films from the versatile Eye collection and special attention to the often neglected art of sound design.

Short Scores

In Short Scores, we playfully push 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.
