A re-scoring of Walter Ruttmann’s Berlin: Symphony of A Metropolis. The score to Act I explores my own research interests and is constituted in the aesthetic and timbral unity between the instrumental performances and the sounds of diegetic objects. The hope is that there are points when the two overlap and become indistinguishable to the audience. A well composed and rhythmic visual montage on its own, there is a lot here for a composer to respond to, particularly a composer concerned with the way we categorise sounds in relation to their context.
