September 21, 2013 - Bonus Event! - FREE - Organ concert by Steven Ball accompanying a silent film - Fountain Street Church - 7pm
The debut of the Power of Music series is entitled “Sound & Vision.” This dynamic, multi-day event will be a fascinating study into the role of music in the creation of a film, and how it shapes the perception of movies by an audience.
On Sept 22 at Fountain Street Church, Richard Chew, the Academy Award-winning editor of Star Wars, and other notable films such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Risky Business, Clean and Sober, Shanghai Noon, I Am Sam, and Bobby, will discuss and illustrate the interplay of these two vital and popular art forms - music and film - and how they work together to deepen our emotional response as viewers - both consciously and subconsciously, to even remaining, ghost-like, in our memories. Mr. Chew will touch on the way music in film has evolved over time, discuss the films and music that influenced him, and give us an intimate look at the reasoning and techniques he used incorporating music into the construction of many famous scenes, sequences and movies.
On the two evenings following his main talk, Sept 23 and 24, Mr. Chew will present a film series at Celebration! Cinema North in which he will screen key movies illustrating the interplay of music and cinema. The first being Risky Business, which he edited. and the second, The Intouchables. He will offer introductory comments to help direct our attention and appreciation of these films and the music they contain. Both screenings begin at 7pm. Lecture ticket holders get advance priority seating until 6:30 for both screenings.
In addition Dr. Steven Ball, widely recognized in the field of theater organ performance and composition, will demonstrate how music has been an essential part of film from the beginning of the art form. Dr. Ball will appear both before Mr. Chew's talk on Sept 22 and in a special FREE stand-alone concert on Saturday, Sept 21 at Fountain Street Church at 7pm.
