Sensoria, the UK’s festival of film, music and digital art returns for its 16th edition, bringing a selection of live music, film screenings, exhibitions and events to a range of iconic venues across Sheffield, UK.
The festival kicks off with Nordic Giants delivering a visceral live music performance accompanying short films, which will take place at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio. High Scores will showcase a selection of artists that celebrate the influence of video game music, including Pizza Hotline, Chipzel and HarleyLikesMusic, with live visuals delivered by Zaron Mizmeras.
We Are Not Devo, the UK’s only Devo tribute act will then be presenting a special post-SynthFest UK performance, followed by The Black Dog, who will be performing a live AV set to launch their new album, ‘My Brutal Life’ — an exhibition of the same name will also be taking place at the iconic Moore Street Electricity Substation.
SensoriaPro, the annual gathering of composers, filmmakers and music industry professionals, will this year welcome Will Gregory of Goldfrapp and Adrian Utley of Portishead, who will be discussing collaborations in music and film in a talk hosted by Joel Mills, Director of Music at the British Council. Chi Chi Nwakodo of Sony Music Publishing and composer Tawiah will also discuss using case studies for placing and composing music for TV and short film, and there will be a chance to meet the music team behind ‘The Full Monty’ TV series, including composer Oli Julian, music supervisor Zoé Ellen Bryant and choir leader Dan McDwyer.
The ever popular Scoring Contest will also return, giving composers the opportunity to submit their music for a specially selected film clip, with a shortlist critiqued by a panel of experts on the day, and a winner voted for by both the panel and the audience.
