New Music for Silent Film

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Soundtracks to silent films, both old and new (the films, that is – the music is all new) is what we're serving up on this New Sounds.  Hear from the UK-based Cinematic Orchestra and their score for the silent film classic, "Man with a Movie Camera." Also, from the Godfrey Reggio film Koyaanisqatsi, hear music by Philip Glass. Glass had to write music of nature as well as music of technology to accompany the time-lapse photography of cities and many natural landscapes across the United States.
