Grammy winner Imogen Heap will unveil her film score tomorrow night during this year's Birds Eye View Film Festival.

It's the first time she's directly scored music to picture.

The multi-instrumentalist has been commissioned to write a new score to a classic silent movie - The Seashell and the Clergymen, which was produced by French surrealist director Germaine Dulac in 1928.

"I would really like to do more of it, the next thing I would like to do is Sci-Fi," she said.

Imogen will headline the special event called Sound and Silents (11 March), alongside Tara Busch and Micachu, who's taking on Hansel and Gretal. 

Listen below to hear how she approached the project and what her future plans are:
