Music is an essential creative element in every film: it colors meaning and plot, evokes emotions - without it, a film would hardly work. The Basler Filmtreff provides insight into the work of two successful film composers: Michael Künstle and Matteo Pagamici. Michael Künstle composed the music for the SRF TV seriesNeumatt, which was sold to Netflix and will now be seen internationally. For feature films, he has collaborated with, among others, director Sabine BossJagdzeit,Der Goali bin igor Basel director Jeshua DreyfusSohn meines Vaters. His soundtracks are created in recordings with musicians: inside like the singer Anna Rosinelli, the band Lovebugs from Basel, or with musicians: inside of the London Symphony Orchestra. Matteo Pagamici composed the music forPlatzspitzbaby and was involved inNeumatt together with Künstle. The conversation with both artists explores the questions: How is the music for a film created, how do film musicians work and how is the collaboration with directors? And of course we will watch and listen (!) to excerpts from films.
The evening will be moderated by Philipp Cueni, curator, journalist and president of the Balimage association.
The Basler Filmtreff - a cooperation of Balimage and Stadtkino Basel - focuses on Basel films and filmmakers. Eight times a year we discuss current works and topics related to Basel filmmaking. Everyone interested in background information on filmmaking and media art is invited to this series of events.
Admission is free for Balimage members.
Balimage thanks the Christoph Merian Foundation for its kind support.
