In 2006 Nitin Sawhney is performing a series
of concerts around the world accompanied by
a symphony orchestra, guest musicians, and
the projection of a stunning Indian silent film.
This exciting project brings together Sawhney,
one of the most influential and versatile
creative talents alive today, with the 1929
Franz Osten film "A Throw Of Dice", Osten's
finest and most accomplished work. This jawdropping
event is being produced by the
British Film Institute and Fandango Films.
The project single-handedly creates a much
needed opportunity for cultural exchange, not
only between the musicians on stage, but
within society itself, by bringing together film
and live music in some of the world’s most
formidable venues. This world-class concert
series is unique, in that the score will be
performed live alongside the film by the
world’s leading orchestras and aimed at a
culturally aware broad demographic of
Sawhney fans, film buffs, and music lovers.
One of the key forces behind this project is
Nitin Sawhney's unique ability to work with
national orchestras and musicians from
around the world. This will facilitate the
cultural exchange of differing musical styles
and will also be an inspiring learning process
for both the musicians and audiences alike.
With an abundance of talent both on-stage
and on-screen, the Throw of Dice live shows
look set to turn the theatrical experience into a
multi-dimensional live event.
