Share Article

Internationally-renowned visual artist Roderick Buchanan is looking for a composer to score a new film. Savalas Sound, in Collaboration with Central Station are running a competition to find a composer to work with Roderick. The main prize is a publishing contract and the competition ends this week.

A publishing contract and the opportunity to work in world-class film sound studios is the prize in a competition which asks entrants to compose a soundtrack for Roderick Buchanan’s recent film.

The competition, being run by Glasgow-based Savalas Sound and creative social network Central Station, is offering the winner a £500 fee and a non-exclusive publishing deal with Savalas’s music publishing arm, the Sonic Design Agency.

Composers, sound designers and musicians from across the world are being invited to collaborate on a new piece of work with internationally-renowned visual artist Roderick (Roddy) Buchanan.

Up to six artists will be given the chance to engage in a development process to work up soundtrack ideas for Roddy’s piece of experimental film-making. Training and support will be given by the sound designers and composers at Savalas, working in Dolby 5.1 at their world-class studios in the heart of Glasgow’s media hub.

Roddy and Savalas will then choose one of the shortlisted artists to create the final soundtrack for the new film which will be shown at major film festivals.

“This competition is about collaboration and opening up to the possibilities that emerge when talent and professional resources come together. It’s also just about giving people a rare chance to say ‘this is what I can do'."
