Soundtrack competition: A Silent Sound

A Silent Sound, film still

La Semaine du Son is pleased to announce a new film scoring competition! Every year, La Semaine du Son selects the best original score created for an excerpt from a silent film. For this next edition, we’ve chosen an abstract and poetic film by Maï Calon, A Silent Sound (2021).

Search your sound archives, imagination and creative spirit to create a surprising new work for the silent version of the film! The ten best entries will be screened at Flagey during La Semaine du Son, followed by an awards ceremony.

Who can enter?

Anyone interested in sound, image and movement; no particular professional experience is required to enter this competition. A jury made up of people with different interests and experience will judge all entries anonymously.
