This is a wicked idea: you show three classic silent short films – all starring Canadian Hollywood pioneer Mary Pickford– and then you commission three cutting edge female musicians to create new compositions to soundtrack each short. EVERYBODY WINS. EYES AND EARS. EVERYBODY.
Bird’s Eye View’s Sound And Sights series will be hosting this event at The Southbank Centre, to celebrate the contribution to early cinema. Friday, march 9th is the date. Tanya Auclair, Anna Meredith, and Iranian Folk singer Roshi are the commissioned artists. On the strength of Tanya’s involvement alone I recommend you visit Southbank forthwith.
