THE SCHOOL of SOUND, Events in 2004-2005 @ admin

THE SCHOOL of SOUND, Events in 2004-2005 # The 6th School of Sound symposium, London: 30 March – 2 April 2005. # The School of Sound at Brief Encounters International Short Film Festival: 18 & 19 November 2004 (School of Sounds) #
THE SCHOOL of SOUND, Events in 2004-2005# The 6th School of Sound symposium, London:

# The School of Sound at Brief Encounters International Short Film Festival:
18 & 19 November 2004


(School of Sounds)

# 30 March – 2 April 2005 at the Purcell Room, London:

The 6th School of Sound symposium will be held in London from 30 March – 2 April 2005. Full programme details will be announced in Autumn 2004.

For further information about the School of Sound, email sos@schoolofsound.co.uk or visit www.schoolofsound.co.uk.

The School of Sound is a four-day symposium exploring the creative aspects of sound with the moving image, and is aimed at everyone working with sound in the creative industries. Each event attracts approximately 250 people coming from over twenty countries to hear practitioners and artists working at the highest creative levels in media and the arts. Our audience comprises producers, directors, editors, sound recordists, sound designers, mixers, composers, radio producers, writers, architects, poets – just about anyone who works with sound.

Since its inception in 1998, the School of Sound has raised the profile of sound in audio-visual media through this unequalled series of presentations that integrate practice with theory, and art with entertainment. For those who work in film, television, radio, commercials or multimedia, this event provides the perfect complement to their technical expertise.

Through master-class presentations the programme explores the creative use of sound, particularly in relation to the moving image. Speakers have included editors Walter Murch and Roberto Perpignani; Hollywood sound designers Skip Lievsay, Randy Thom and Ren Klyce; composers Louis Andriessen, Carter Burwell, Michael Nyman and Simon Fisher Turner; theorists Michel Chion, Peter Wollen and Laura Mulvey; filmmakers Mani Kaul and Peter Kubelka; artists Christina Kubisch and Hans Peter Kuhn; radio producers Piers Plowright and Gregory Whitehead. In 2003 we featured the sound team from Dogme 95, plus Polish master animator Jerzy Kucia. We have also produced video interviews with Nic Roeg, David Lynch, documentarist Michael Grigsby, sound producer François Musy, and Owe Svensson, the sound mixer who created the soundtrack for Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Sacrifice”.

The School of Sound is not a commercial training course nor an academic conference. You will not learn equipment or software. It will, however, teach you new perspectives on the work you do and the creative processes of contemporary sound production.

# Brief Encounters International Short Film Festival Thursday-Friday, 18-19 November 2004
The School of Sound presents six masterclasses with leading practitioners and artists from British film and television.

Thursday, 18 November

Robin O’Donoghue is Head of Post Production Sound at Shepperton Studios and his mixing credits include Love Actually, Gosford Park, Shakespeare in Love and The End of the Affair. He unveils the art of mixing a soundtrack and how that relates to a film’s narrative.

Alison Bown, a features sound editor and formerly of Electronic Arts (Harry Potter Prisoner Of Azkaban video game), has worked in the fields of music technology, percussion and media arts work with young people and excluded communities. She demonstrates the subjectivity of sound and how its purpose shifts when married to picture.

Annabelle Pangborn is a sound designer, composer and singer who has created soundtracks for a variety of genres, working with directors Penny Woolcock (The Death of Klinghoffer), Beeban Kidron, Simon Pummell and Brian Percival ( Pleasureland). She deconstructs music for shorts, animation and dance films – forms often involving experimental narratives – where the place of music becomes more crucial in its role to connect the audience to a familiar reality,

Friday, 19 November

Chris Watson is a sound recordist with a particular and passionate interest in recording the wildlife sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world. His presentation combines his wildlife recording (BBC’s The Life of Birds, BAFTA Award for Best Factual Sound) with his CD productions for Touch (Outside the Circle of Fire, Stepping Into the Dark, Weather Report), emphasising the need for an aural awareness when recording and editing.

WHY MUSIC? Does contemporary urban music (Hip Hop, Drum ‘n’ Bass, et al) play the same role as traditional film music? What is the relation between music and other components of the track? Do directors know how music works? Do composers know how film works? A panel of composers discuss the place of music within modern film soundtrack. Speakers: Stephen Deutsch, Head of Music at Bournemouth University and the National Film and Television School; composer Paul Gladstone Reid, known for his work with Isaac Julien and currently composing a “Hollywood Hip-Hop Opera Musical”; Annabelle Pangborn and others to be named later.

Michael Grigsby has been one of Britain’s foremost documentary directors since the early 1960s whose work was honoured in a recent retrospective at the NFT. Drawing parallels between the use of sound in fiction and documentary, Grigsby explores how sound and music informs his particular style of observational filmmaking.

The Price:
‘a T-shirt, and announcing this weblog as the winner on Adverts around the ‘blog-city.com’ site with a link to your blog.’
Thanks, I’am proud of that!!! It’s good for promoting the world-wide ‘radio-feature’ (the basic theme on this site). And maybe we met new people…You are invited, each of you!

For all new visitors here: Welcome!….
below a short introduction about this weblog and about the IFC
(why not)


(this is our IFC logo)

The international radio documentary was a pretty bland concoction up until the mid-1960s. Although most radio countries made documentaries, some producing innovative and interesting results, no one knew anything about each other. It was a state of isolation, like standing on a cliff at night, seeing the lights of distant ships or beacons, but having no way of contacting them. (by weblog now)

The Conferences which travelled the world and were organized in most of the capitals of radio became the mobile home of the family of feature-makers, the magnetic click of learning and belonging. And wherever the Mecca was in a specific year, the brothers and sisters of the feature world would pack their professional suitcases and go there. What a deep joy each time to see all of you again. (by weblog too)

The conference (and weblog) is the permanent list of wishes, warnings, recommendations, recipes, strategies. You are invited, each of you, to extend it through the years. Feature is necessary.

Dear feature friends,
next International Feature Conference will be in Romania,the dates will be 30 April – 5 May 2005


(Societatea Romana de Radiodifuziune)

I’ m very glad our Rumanian colleagues are willing to organize and will be our hosts over there and I’m sure it will be successful.

Last years we found out that a new group of younger, promising documentary makers is active over there. They were and are already active in the feature Conference, Prix Europa and the EBU Masterschool.
It is great to have them with us.

Now the EBU Feature Project Group and our Rumanian colleagues are working on a schedule for these five inspiring days. We hope you will join us!

new elections
During next Feature Conference there will also be the new elections for the Feature Project Group.
If you want to be a candidate for your country: please contact your national Public Broadcaster about this, and see what is possible. Later we will give you some more information about procedures during the elections.

Hope to see you all in Romania…
Vincent van Merwijk, chairman of the EBU Feature Project Group

Shortlist Radio (drama & doc) Prix Italia @ Admin

SHORTLISTS (17 sep 2004)(list of winners is coming up soon)


(Prix Italia)

SHORTLIST RADIO DRAMA JURY REPORT Original Drama
The jury listened to 25 entries in this category, having moved two programmes to the adapted drama section, as they were clearly adaptations and not original works ( RTE : “Performances”, ABC :”Myths, propaganda and disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America”) One production (SABC:” What goes around comes around”) was skipped from the list as no English translation was available.

SHORTLIST
ORF (Austria) : The Confession Script : Felix Mitterer Director . Martin Sailer
The jury was deeply impressed by this work dealing with a most actual, delicate and obscure topic that shocked Austria and many other countries as well : child abuse by priests of the catholic church. With both merciless lucidity and extreme delicacy The Confession explores the dark sides of desire and power, destroying children’s innocence and any further relationships. The jury praises highly the tense and inventive dramaturgical structure, as well as the excellent acting. The Confession is radio drama with its two feet in today’s society.

YLE (Finland) : The Night Visitor – A Synchronistic Thriller Script : Kjell Lindblad Director : Solveig Mattson
The Night Visitor – a bloodcurdling thriller about a crime committed in Finland more then 35 years ago – brings us back to the great moments of radio drama. Using all the stylistic and expressive assets of the medium , here is “ the theatre of the mind “ at its very best : exploiting with a sure hand and an excellent taste the imaginative and suggestive power of radio. All the ingredients are there : psychological tension, surprise and suspense, excellent writing, the piece in the piece, a whirling dramaturgy travelling fluidly through different time and space layers and, not to forget, the superb recording and control over the acoustical space.

RSLO (Slovenia) : Night Tariff Script : Jasa Jenull Director : Jasa Jenull
Young urban Radio Drama, one could call Night Tariff, taking us to the feverish nightlife of a metropole. It’s a story about a taxi driver and the clients that enter his world, a chaotic and absurd carrousel of people trying to fit into life and mostly wanting to be somewhere else. The jury welcomes Night Tariff as an energetic pulse in radio drama land. The actors, all students, introduce a new, natural and fresh real life tone in portraying their characters and the sounds and the musical treatment underline perfectly this frenetic journey through the nightly space in between dream and day to day reality.

Further more, the jury wants to stress the specific qualities of the following programmes .

Apeiron, presented by ARD, Germany( script Michael Esser, director Walter Adler) :
A beautifully written and very well produced programme about human illusions and disillusions in the hectic universe of electronic highways, internet and an exploding market of e-commerce.

 

We love our country, presented by Denmark Radio (script and direction Peter Dupont Weis) :
A programme about being Danish in a multicultural society. The jury appreciated the natural, unconventional tone of acting, a result of a specific scriptwriting procedure and recordings only on location.

Leon , presented by RAI ( script and direction by Gaetano Cappa and Marco Drago) , for its technical bravoure in revisiting the story of rock music. Ayashino, presented by NHK Japan, (script Shoichiro Okubo, director Yoshhisa Hoshina) for its strong epic power and impressive musical score.

ADAPTED DRAMA
The jury did not find enough qualities in the presented adapted drama productions to be able to produce a shortlist. Nevertheless, one production had all the required qualities to win the Prix Italia in this category. For reasons of dramaturgical tension and suspense, the winner will be announced tomorrow.

Edwin Brys President of the Drama Jury

SHORTLIST and REPORT OF THE JURIES: RADIO DOCUMENTARY 2004
Jury members: Ms. Marwil Straat Projectmanager Radiodocumentary President of the Jury The Netherlands NOS Mr. Erling Kristensen Production Manager Danmark DR Mr. Yukihiro Shibata Senior producer News and Program Production Center Japan NHK Mr. Djordje Malavrazic Editor in Chief Serbia Montenegro SBC/RTS Mr. Mikael Cohen Head of Documentary Dept. Sweden SR Mr. Robert Matejka Editor of Drama Documentary Dept. Germany ARD

The Jury has to award prizes in two categories, the so called Current Affairs Documentary and the Cultural Documentary. Before we announce the shortlist in each category we want to comment on this categorization. We are not the first Jury that feels that this division of the documentary genre is not working out fine. On the earlier Prix Italia festivals three Juries in a row before us had difficulty with it.

We feel it is sometimes arbitrary to which category an entry belongs and the entries are interchangeable. That’s why we advise to discuss this categorization in future. We suggest it might be better to put the two categories together and make a new category for new, experimental documentary formats to encourage young makers to find new ways to express themselves in this field of work as this is very important for a healthy renewal of the documentary genre as a whole. This year the Jury had to listen to and discuss 23 entries. 10 in the Current Affairs Category, 13 in the Cultural category. First we listened to an excerpt of all entries. After this we decided which entries were interesting enough for us to put on our two longlists. Later on we listened to 5 documentaries in the Current Affairs category and to 7 of the Cultural entries. The Jury feels that the overall quality of the documentaries we heard is the same as in previous years. Most of them were quite well done, but there were few really outstanding and special documentaries. Programs that really surprised us and kept our attention till the end. The main problem is the difficulty that many radio documentary makers have with telling a good story. They seem to lack the tools of dramaturgy and that’s a pity especially as the recording in most documentaries, the quality of sound and editing is getting better and better and is sometimes brilliant. We liked the themes of the entries, they lay close to the everyday questions, drama and worries of human life, but we miss experiments and new ways of telling stories.

Let’s go to our shortlists:

The Jury is pleased that it is able to report that the following three programmes have been short listed for this year’s award in the Current Affairs Category. We’ll mention them in alphabetical order:

The Eburones (from VRT Belgium)
In this series of 10 short programmes two young presenters investigate the advantages of the growing Europe. It is made by young people for young listeners, done in a refreshing, humorous, entertaining and sometimes unorthodox way. Although the quality of the episodes is not always the same we like the way the makers of this series are trying out new ways in the documentary field.

The Price of Work (from PR Poland)
This programme tells the story of miners in Poland that under communism were highly respected workers but now are left on their own because mine after mine is closing. The Jury likes the sound quality of the programme and the critical and persistent way the interviewers approached their subject.

Tango with the Devil (form VRT Belgium)
The jury appreciates this well made story that covers the emotional worlds of four prisoners who committed serious crimes in Belgium. The producers succeed in making close and open minded relationships with the prisoners who tell honestly about what they did and how it affected their lives and the lives of their victims. A strong and intimate document. Also in the Cultural Category the Jury succeeded in chosing three programmes for the shortlist:

The Brown parcel. The inheritance form Father ( from NRK Norway)
An entertaining story about secrets in the family which opens the perspectives of life and death. A program, which presents us to a gallery of pleasant characters, that sometimes plays their roles surprisingly perfect. The suspense is handled with great elegance and gives us the magic of radio.

Georges Courtois, the Terrible Jojo (from SRF France)
This documentary mixes archive news material and present interviews to tell the story of Georges Courteois, who took the court in Nantes hostage in 1985 to draw attention to the terrible conditions of the prison regime in France and ended up years later as a court reporter. The Jury likes the mix of old and new material in this unpredictable and ambigious story that forces the listener to take position.

Voice Box and flute (from CBC/SRC Canada)
A short story about a woman who lost her voice and her ability to play the flute because of ALS, a an fatal disease. Thanks to modern techniques she is still able to communicate. A moving and convincing story without false sentimentality, showing us the vital strength of an extraordinary personality. Even facing the death, Sarah Green keeps her sense of humour. A piece that only works on radio.

DRAMA MOTIVATIONS:
To adapt this more than classical masterpiece of cinema, was a serious challenge. Would radio and the skills of the adapters be strong enough to render the extraordinary tension and mystery of the original? The jury was deeply impressed by the transposition to the non visual medium. All radiophonic techniques of traditional but effective storytelling worked as they should : the cool, tongue-in-cheek tone of narration, a dramaturgy at the service of permanent suspense, the use of music as a basic element in dramatic and psychological development. Goose pimples are guaranteed.

MOTIVATIONS:
The Jury decided unanimously to give the prize in this category to a work that mirrors reality now; the human and political consequences of the slowly breakdown of the mining industry in post-communist Poland. The Jury liked the critical and persistent way of interviewing in “The Price of Work”( from PR Poland). The sounds give a visual dimension to this excellent programme and are essential to the structure. An accessible documentary about a complex situation where the safety of miners is conflicting with the fear of losing jobs.

There were as usual TWO winners in the Prix Italia @ Steve Wadhams

I have FEEDBACK for you. There were as usual TWO winners in the Prix Italia, the Polish documentary which you mention but also the CANADIAN documentary in the Radio Cultural category. It’s called “Voice Box and Flute”. You’ll see the details
I have FEEDBACK for you. There were as usual TWO winners in the Prix Italia, the Polish documentary which you mention but also the CANADIAN documentary in the Radio Cultural category.
It’s called “Voice Box and Flute”. You’ll see the details in the judges shortlist.
(CBC , Canada)

By the way this is the second Prix Italia win for documentary by our small show here at CBC. The show is called “Outfront”. The first was in 1999 for the programme “The Change in Farming” which is also now included in the IFC 30th anniversary boxed CD set. So we’re very proud and definitely celebrating.

“Voicebox and Flute” was produced in Ottawa by CBC producers Lisa Hebert and Carol Spendlove with the person who’s story it is, Sarah Green. The story centres on how Sarah Green deals with her disease – ALS (or Lou Gehrig’s disease). Sarah died of this disease last December, eight months after the programme was aired.

Many thanks
