Music and cinema: the wedding of the century

The Atelier 144 designed and created the multimedia interfaces of this exhibition, which took place at the Cité de la Musique in Paris from March 19 to August 18, 2013. More than 100 film clips and interactive modules promoted a sensitive and informative approach to the music score.

Intended for both film buffs and music lovers, the exhibition Musique et cinéma, le mariage du siècle gave the visitors the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of great films that made their mark on the history of cinema by highlighting the role of music in their formulation. The exhibition aims at showing the role that music can play from the very first design and all along the production of a film.

Several interfaces were available:

  • The “themed Jukebox” interface offered the possibility to listen to a great number of thematically organized soundtracks. It had been simultaneously deployed on several computers so that users could interact and listen to selected music.
  • The “multiple soundtrack versions” interface gave the opportunity to discover two soundtrack versions of the same film clip.
  • The “mixing” interface aimed at promoting a better understanding of the technique and the part play by sound mixing in film-making.
