THE SOUND OF STORY: MY ONE DEMAND
PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL
17 & 18 NOVEMBER 2015
AN EXPLORATION OF SOUND AND MUSIC IN STORYTELLING
Blast Theory co-founder, Matt Adams and sound recordist and mixer Evan Jerred present a case study of the groundbreaking interactive film My One Demand at The Sound of Story 2015: two days of talks, screenings and workshops that explore the creative potential of sound in the storytelling process.
At The Sound of Story, Adams and Jerred will talk us through the creative and production challenges they faced delivering multi-layered sound on the interactive film My One Demand, which premiered at Luminato Festival in Toronto early in 2015. Filmed as a single continuous shot, and streamed live online and in cinemas, the film follows seven people as they stride out across Toronto, delivering a tale of unrequited love.
Adams co-founded Blast Theory in 1991, an artists’ group making interactive work. Blast Theory is renowned for its multidisciplinary approach using new technologies in theatre, games and visual art, producing such works as the highly acclaimed interactive life coach app Karen, which won the Best of British Digital award from the British Interactive Media Association.
Blast Theory has shown work at the Venice Biennale, Sundance Film Festival and at Tate Britain. Commissioners include Channel 4, the BBC and the Royal Opera House. The group has been nominated for four BAFTAs and won the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica.
Matt has curated at Tate Modern and at the ICA in London, taught widely and lectured at Stanford University, the Royal College of Art and the Sorbonne. He is a winner of the Maverick Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards, and was a Thinker In Residence for the South Australian Government and Visiting Professor in Interactive Media at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Currently, he is an Honorary Fellow at the University of Exeter.
On My One Demand, he acted as sound recordist and mixer, recording dialogue and ambience during the shoot and supervising the technical aspects and performance of the soundtrack elements including narration, voiceover, music mixing and final cinematic presentation.
