Brighton: Symphony of a City
Lizzie Thynne film director
Ed Hughes composer & conductor
Orchestra of Sound and Light
Brighton in all its festive, bohemian, campaigning glory has inspired a remarkable fusion of silent film and live music by filmmaker Lizzie Thynne and composer Ed Hughes, originally commissioned by the Brighton Festival to premiere at its 50th edition.
Drawing on such precedents as Walter Ruttmann’s 1927 silent classic Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, this new film depicts a day in the life of the city, darting back and forth through time to encompass archive film of the lost glories and contemporary events that have defined Brighton’s profile as the UK’s most vibrant location. This kaleidoscope of local identity is accompanied by a sumptuous symphonic score performed live by Orchestra of Sound and Light.
Commissioned by Brighton Festival
Supported by Screen Archive South East and the University of Sussex
