I composed for the Edinburgh University 10x10x20 event in February. It involves composers who are either attending or Alumni of the University an participating HE universities as well as animators each composing a composition of film a day. Quite a challenge. The animations are, of necessity, short. They are very time consuming to make. The composing felt equally challenging as work needed to be fitted in with general life but couldn't be put off. Late nights involved and by the end of it my eyes felt gritty having had so little sleep!
It was very worthwhile and interesting.
After the first day (when we had to compose blind having not seen any of the films) you could choose which ones to pick. I thought I might put a few of the films up here.
Equally it was interesting to see animators choose bit of music.
One of my short pieces was chosen by at least 3 animators. Here they are below.
This first film was the one I chose to set my music to, a lovely animation called headlights.
The next film, Forbidden Light, is by Maria Pashova and beautifully suits the music too.
The third animation os different again but equally lovely by Lina Kerr. i think you'll recognise the music by now
