Bretagne - Ecosse 2011

An Introduction to cinéconcerts

Tuesday 21 June 2011 17:00-18:00

Institut français d’Ecosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

From 20 to 24 June, the Institut français welcomes 5 bands from Rennes for an exciting programme of cinéconcerts untitled ’From Silent to Loud’.
A programme of talks and events completes the week, encouraging discussions about this fascinating theme and bringing French and Scottish artists together.

Cinéconcerts have become a cultural phenomenon in France, and particularly in the renowned city of Rennes. This simple premise – for which musicians re-edit films and write their own scores to be played live in-front of the film – has yielded an enormous diversity of results, from the thrilling to the humorous. As part of this week of cinéconcerts presentations, master musicians from Rennes discuss the origins and opportunities of this new form of practice.

Licensed bar and restaurant open.

Admission: £5 / £3
