Music and image

Music and image

Celebrating the juxtaposition of music and image, the Philharmonie presents screenings of cinema classics with live musical accompaniment and experimental audiovisual projects.

Fantasia, Star Wars and Metropolis: ‘ciné-concerts’ are the opportunity to rediscover cinema classics on the big screen with live musical accompaniment.

The season offers numerous occasions to explore the connection between music and visual media, including images of the Hubble Space Telescope accompanying a work by Eric Whitacre, a string quartet concert given at the planetarium of the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, the electropop of Zombie Zombie dressed in art by illustrator Philippe Druillet, photographs by Sebastião Salgado with musical works celebrating the Amazon, and various children’s shows as well.
