Cannibal Compositions

On Tuesday, I watched students from the University of Northampton perform a film score which they had composed at the Royal and Derngate Theatre. They worked with songwriter Chris T-T, producing pieces for a medley of film clips by the French Director Claire Denis. I thought the students’ interpretation of the scene from Denis’ 2001 film “Trouble Every Day,” was particularly effective. Their frantic, lurching composition reflected the growing horror of the scene; the boy breaking through the boarded-up bedroom doorway, and falling prey to the object of his lust’s libidinous cannibalism. See the video of their performance here:
