Event description

HippFest Commission: New Found Sound

New Found Sound is a unique schools initiative which invites talented young people to respond musically to silent film.  Now in its seventh year the 2017 project is led by mentor, Susanne Bell (musician, composer and Falkirk Youth Music Initiative tutor) and leading folk musicians John Somerville (Treacherous Orchestra), Marc Duff (Capercaillie co-founder) and Steven Holland, tutors with Falkirk Schools’ Traditional Music Groups. 

Students from Larbert High School will be conducting and performing the world premiere of their own new score to a film directed by prolific Scottish amateur filmmaker Frank Marshall (‘Mower Madness’ (1939). 

This zany comedy will be followed by two shorts from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive accompanied by the traditional bands. We end the event with a filmc urated by a group from HippFest’s youth engagement programme.
