On today’s podcast, Musician, Jean-Francois Alcoléa talks about the Edinburgh Festival Fringe offering, Right In The Eye, a live musical production featuring the works of Georges Méliès, the inventor of cinema and special effects. This production, featured at the French Institute in Edinburgh, tours all over the world. Here is my interview with Jean-Francois Alcoléa.
A live trio of French musicians intertwine playful modern compositions and the fantasy of the legendary filmmaker Georges Méliès, father of cinema and the inventor of special effects. French composer Jean-François Alcoléa and his fellow musicians use sound and image to create a universe as inventive as the filmmaker's creations were. 'It is at once inventive, elegant and moving' (Chronique, Festival OFF d'Avignon). 'Creatively intelligent. All the sounds and music brought Georges Méliès' films to life' (Houstonian).
