Back in February of 2008, New Sounds Live presented another in our silent film series: Sergei Eisenstein’s "Battleship Potemkin," featuring a new score from clarinet powerhouse David Krakauer and beat scientist Socalled, commissioned by Arts>World Financial Center. A visit to the legendary city of Odessa, (the location for Sergei Eisenstein’s classic, Battleship Potemkin), was the catalyst for these musicians’ first collaborative film composition. Hear the results on this New Sounds program.
