The music video by Jon Forsyth of the fourth movement of the Stylus Symphony is now up on YouTube. Featuring fire dancing by Annabelle Lydgate of www.soulfiredance.com, the movement combines dubstep with a full symphony orchestra, turntablism, jazz trumpet and latin percussion.
You can now see the latest video for Movement 1 of Stephen Webber’s Stylus Symphony! The Movement is called “Symphonic Scratch.” You can view it on YouTube and below.
This week, we’ll be introducing you to performers in the Stylus Symphony. You’ve seen Movements II and III of the symphony so far, and the remaining two movements will be coming soon!
In the meantime, let’s meet some of the people Stephen Webber enlisted to perform on the official recording, and in the official videos, of the Stylus Symphony project. We’ll start with harp player Maeve Gilchrist.
Gilchrist was born in Scotland to an Irish mother and Scottish father. She grew up immersed in folk music, and has taken that tradition and a huge amount of talent to become a lauded innovator on the Celtic Harp. Maeve tours regularly with her own original compositions and to teach and perform at festivals.
Maeve spoke to the Stylus Symphony filmmakers about the project, and you can watch the video below!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s been an exciting few days for the Stylus Symphony. Composer Stephen Webber is in Los Angeles working on a few projects, and recently attended the premiere of Re:Generation Music Project, a documentary that paired DJs with various genres of music to create new and interesting sounds. Stephen Webber helped DJ Premier work with the Berklee Symphony Orchestra to create a cool track, and the pair hit the red carpet together at the film’s premiere late last week.
While we’re talking about the fusion of classical and dance music, let’s get to this week’s video!
This week we are premiering Movement 2 of Stephen Webber’s Stylus Symphony, which is called “Na Pali.” You can view it on YouTube and below.
Today’s the day and now’s the time: the first movement of Stephen Webber’s Stylus Symphony has been posted as full-length music video on YouTube!
