Project description
Central Station is looking for a Sound Designer, Musician or Composer to collaborate on a new piece of work with internationally renowned visual artist Roderick Buchanan, working in Dolby 5.1 with Savalas Studios (Glasgow).

“Music is organised sound” Edgard Verese

Stage One:
In partnership with Savalas and Roddy, Central Station is offering up to six members the opportunity to engage in a development process to work up soundtrack ideas for Roddy’s next piece of experimental film-making.
You’ll be given training and support where appropriate by the guys at Savalas.

Stage Two:
Roddy and Savalas will choose one of the shortlisted members to create the final soundtrack for this new piece of work. You’ll get a £500 fee and a non-exclusive publishing deal with The Sonic Design Agency.

“This competition is about collaboration and opening-up to the possibilities when talent and professional resources come together. It’s also just about giving people a rare chance to say – this is what I can do. “ Giles Lamb, Savalas Studios.

“Central Station’s launch in 2009, with its interest in artists, designers and filmmakers raises interesting issues about context. These 3 groups converse with their audience in 3 quite different ways. Can they work together to produce a successful outcome? Lets see.” Roderick Buchanan, Artist
