Trinity Laban research seminar examines the role of music in film

Douglas Finch

On Wednesday 12 November, Trinity Laban will host a free research seminar on the role of music in film.

The seminar features Trinity Laban’s Douglas Finch who composes musical scores for films by Jon Sanders, such as Back to the Garden. Douglas will discuss his compositional process when working with Jon, and will also examine the role of music within film. The talk will feature extracts from Sanders' films as well as examples from cinematic models including Bresson and Tarkovsky.

This year’s research seminars are built around the theme of Art and Politics, and feature art and culture experts from the country’s foremost academic institutions, examining issues such as politics and aesthetics, critical pedagogy and the role of arts education in contemporary society. Research is at the heart of Trinity Laban’s role as a leading music and dance higher education institution, and the research seminar series enables the undergraduate and postgraduate students to critically engage and interpret theories and ideas to inform their own discourse.

Douglas Finch’s Between Image and Sound: Finding a Role for Music in Jon Sanders' Films, will take place on 12 Nov from 17.15-18.15 in the Lecture Theatre, Laban Building. For more information and to book a place on the Trinity Laban Art and Politics research seminar series, click here.
