Soul Mates: Film and Music
April 12, 2013
To showcase the relationship between music and film, the Museum of Fine Art, Boston (MFA) will premier Soul Mates: Film and Music, a timeline of the history of music and the moving image. The concert will take place on Friday April 12th at 7:30 p.m. at the MFA. Soul Mates will feature local Boston-area musicians presenting four short live musical performances all incorporating aspects of film and moving images.
Jasmine Hagans, MFA concerts manager, organized Soul Mates to share with visitors that music is not merely just an audible experience; it’s a living event that expounds upon the senses. To Hagans, all music conjures up different feelings and emotions, often intensified when coupled with images from album art, films and videos. In short, music and images are soul mates.
The line-up of musicians for Soul Mates cannot be beat, featuring highly acclaimed artists, The Boston String Players, Devil Music Ensemble, Gem Club, and Hospice for the Three Hundred. Each will perform musical sets of their choosing alongside images and film. From Devil Music Ensembles use of surrealist film clips to the minimalist pop aesthetics of Gem Club’s music videos, each set brings new ideas to what the pairing of music and image can bring. We live in a world of constant sound and image—why not make them beautiful together.
