Music, Memory and Nostalgia: Film Makers Required

25-11-2006 10-58-20_0137

As some of you may know, I am currently working on a ‘history of popular music’ project in the town of Merthyr Tydfil – eventually moving to other regions of South Wales. The 2nd dimension to the project is related to the various ways in which music can evoke memories and nostalgia. In preparation for a conference in Prague in November,I  am working on a series of pieces of music (not all composed by me) that deal with this theme – and I am looking for those interested in filmmaking/photography to provide accompanying images to the music. The idea is to come up with a combined music/image combination that evoke memory and nostalgia in the people listening/watching. If anyone is interested please get in touch. Here are a couple of pieces to get you started – please share with anyone you think may be interested. These pieces will be considered for a month long exhibition taking place in Merthyr in January 2018.I am open to how  the images are put together, but obviously anything used needs to be cleared for copyright. I do however have a number of images that have been given permission, that can be accessed via the projects Facebook Page and History Pin page
