BFI Luminous Project

Monday 14th October 2013

Stephen and the Urban Soul Orchestra performed at a fundraising gala on October 8th 2013 in order to secure funds for the future of the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive.


After winning the bid with innovative production company The Light Surgeons, Stephen worked together with the exceptional sound designer Jude Greenaway to create a specially commissioned track. This track was then performed by USO musicians, and synchronized with a short film at the evening’s finalé. The short film was narrated by Idris Elba (currently starring in the Nelson Mandela biopic – Long Walk To Freedom).
