Open Air Cinema 2015
Old Films / New Music
The symbiosis between pop music and film art is steadily becoming a movement in its own right within the world of popular culture. DJs and musicians are being challenged to compose new soundtracks for old classics from film history, to be played ‘live’ during films showings. While the real blockbusters commonly feature existing hits to heighten popular appeal, the DJs and musicians at Rocket Cinema focus try to create original soundtracks for existing films, mixed with existing music or their own compositions. They draw inspiration from the atmosphere, pace and tension in the film, using their work to serve the interests of the film classic itself. DJs and musicians with a good reputation try their hand at a different style of work, guided by the dynamics of the film itself. The music not only needs its own solid internal structure, but must also translate or interpret the tension and narrative structure of the film. Artistes can use their own trusted style as a departure point for unique new ideas and unconventional solutions.
