The Rotoscope Orchestra
Digital music category
by Magalela Mtshali | South Africa
The Rotoscope Orchestra aims to perform live soundscapes to early 1900’s silent films. The project will bring these early pioneering films back into the public lexicon, but will also add an Afrocentric aesthetic to the films. The aim is to fuse eclectic soundscapes with much loved silent films, thus creating a rare experience for viewers. Filming of the concert will be done in a single continuous 360 VR shot to capture both the audience and the performance.
