Today's Sounds for Yesterday's Films: Making Music for Silent Cinema screenshot
English | 2018 | ISBN: 1349579130 | 240 Pages | PDF | 4.91 MB
In recent years, there has been something of an explosion in the performance of live music to silent films. There is a wide range of films with live and new scores that run from the historically accurate orchestral scores to contemporary sounds by groups such as Pet Shop Boys or by experimental composers and gothic heavy metal bands. It is no exaggeration to claim that music constitutes a bridge between the old silent film and the modern audience; music is also a channel for non-scholarly audiences to gain an appreciation of silent films. Music has become a means both for musicians and audiences to understand this bygone film art anew. This book is the first of its kind in that it aims to bring together writings and interviews to delineate the culture of providing music for silent films. It not only has the character of a scholarly work but is also something of a manual in that it discusses how to make music for silent films.

This is interesting. I had heard of people scoring soundtracks for silent films some years back but never really looked into it. I initially heard some Metal bands were composing songs/melodies for old, dystopian movies (I don't know if the infamous Metropolis movie was one of them, but if not, it should be.)
Considering some of the Black Metal bands make fairly symphonic music already, it seemed like a nice marriage. I would be interested in hearing a band like Dimmu Borgir or, on the lighter, less doom-y side of things, a Power Metal band like Blind Guardian, compose something for an old flic. After listening to past albums of theirs, both seem to have the chops to compose something that could make the reception of an old movie more accessible to non-cinephiles.
Thanks, Sunny. :)
