Red & The Kingdom Of Sound is an animated adaptation of Benjamin Britten’s 1945 composition, The Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra. Red & The Kingdom Of Sound visualises the symphony orchestra as a fantastical realm comprising fifteen different architectural districts deriving from the different musical instruments of the orchestra. Red, the animation’s protagonist, personifies the new-comer to classical music as he makes his way through the distinctive musical terrains of Britten’s orchestral landscape.
