Film music gets Red Eye airing.

Byline: Karen Price

A company which has been formed to write instrumentals for films will be launched with two special gigs in Wales next month.

Singer-songwriter Christopher Rees and pianist Dave Stapleton have set up Red Eye Music to compose tracks for films.

The company will be officially unveiled at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff on March 5 and 6.

During the first half of the gigs the musicians, including a string quartet and a pianist on a grand piano, will perform in front of a giant cinema screen featuring visuals by an array of innovative young film makers, animators and artists.

'The first half of the evening will be dedicated to the cinematic instrumentals we have been working on,' said Llanelli-born Rees, a music critic for The Western Mail.

'We also want to show audiences the array of work out there by the young film makers, animators and video artists.'

The gigs will be rounded off with performances by Rees and his band when he will air some of the tracks from his debut album, which is also called Red Eye , set to be released later this year. It will be his first full performance in more than 18 months.
