TrackSound – The War and Momi’s Dream

From: 20th April 2019 5:00 pm

To: 20th April 2019 6:30 pm


The Arches Top Lodge Fineshade Wood Nr Corby NN17 3BB

Experience a silent film come to life with a live chamber music performance.




TrackSound is an eclectic project aiming to establish and celebrate the role of music as a language, restoring soundtracks as a storytelling device. TrackSound challenges its audience to become an active listener of performances that involve music and arts.

The first TrackSound event is a projection of Segundo De Chomón’s The War and Momi’s dream (1917) – thought to be the first Italian animated film. A child, playing with his beloved toy soldiers, hears about his father’s heroic actions at the front. He is so impressed that he finds himself dreaming of a war undertaken by his own toys, magically animated.

This screening will be accompanied by an original soundtrack composed by Michele Catania, premiering in the UK by a four-piece chamber music ensemble conducted by Ginevra Paniati.

This screening is suitable for families.

This event is the first guest project at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art’s The Arches.
