New Found Sound (2020)
Part of the HippFest programme since the beginning, New Found Sound is a unique schools initiative which invites talented young people to create and perform music to accompany silent film.
This online performance was recorded in 2020 with students from Grangemouth High School conducting Falkirk Schools Orchestra as they premiered a new score for All On A Summer’s Day (1933).
This will be followed by two other short films from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, Schoolboy Hostellers (1951, abridged) and Log Cabin (1936), accompanied by the Falkirk Schools Traditional Bands.
Supported by the Youth Music Initiative, National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive and Screen Education Edinburgh. With thanks to Hostelling Scotland.
