Music for Writers

There are some terrific Saturday Schools for Writers as part of the community and adult education programme at Canterbury Christ Church University throughout the Autumn, which offer amazing value and a range of fascinating topics.  

November 22 offers the second in an innovative series called Music for Writers: Emotion, Music and Moving Image.  This is intended for writers, music lovers and film lovers.  How can words, sound and image combine to create something unique? How is music used to express and convey emotion and atmosphere when combined with the medium of film? What is the relationship between sound and image? Using case studies that include films such as The Go-Between (Joseph Losey), Last Year in Marienbad (Alain Resnais) and Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and Psycho, these issues will be explored and examined.

The tutor is an award winning composer and inspiring teacher, who wrote the music for my book trailer for Coming Home

Barry Seaman's work has been performed in the UK and Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, with broadcasts on Radio 3.  His music for silent films Tsar Ivan Vasilyevitch Grozny (Alexander Ivanov-Gai 1915) and The Life of Richard Wagner (Carl Froelich 1913) was widely toured in the USA. Barry has a special interest in music as a healing process and is currently working on Mirabai, a large scale multimedia opera that explores the life of Mirabai, mystic poet and dancer from 16th century Rajasthan. A short film of the Krishna dance scene was directed by acclaimed film director, Tony Palmer.
