Changing Perspectives Re-Scored

Our Intermediate Orchestra did an inspirational job in creating a new score for this brilliant film made by the young people of WHEC with Screen Education Edinburgh.

The course was for young people aged 10 – 18 who can play 5 notes or more on a musical instrument. None of the young people had done anything like this before and most have never written any music before.

We spent 10 weeks using our natural powers of improvisation and creativity to develop new scores for two films led by the musical Jedi, Mike Kearney.

All of the musical ideas came from participants and the course culminated with us making a live recording of the soundtracks which you can hear below.

Here’s the audio from our second film ‘Summer In Scotland’ from the Scottish Film Archive. We don’t have permission to share the film here, only the audio.
