                      In February 2012, two students from Trinity College of Music were selected to compose two new contemporary pieces of music for the Royal River exhibition. The pieces were written for a 17 piece orchestra, played by the London Philarmonia and recorded binaurally. This short documentary follows students Soosan Lolavar and Nick Moorish in their creative process. A project commissioned by the National Maritime Museum and curated by composer/sound designer Nick Ryan. Film directed, shot and edited by Magali Charrier.
