Silent Film Score

"Silent film score" music refers to the music that was composed and performed to accompany silent films during the era when films had no synchronized sound. This music was typically played live by a pianist or small ensemble in the theater as the film was being screened, and it was intended to enhance the emotional impact of the visual images on screen. Silent film scores could range from simple improvisations to elaborate compositions, and they often included a mix of popular songs, classical music, and original pieces specifically written for the film. Some silent films also used pre-recorded music tracks or cue sheets which provide the specific music for each scene of the film. Silent film scores are an important part of the history of film and music.

Comedic and playful, this rag-time ditty has a strong melody, and is heavy in the bass chords. The second minute features flighty finger-work, as if an energetic bee is flying up and down the scales. The last thirty seconds is a refrain of the introduction, and the piece ends with...

Hey buddy, that is quite the sack of onions you have! If I had a sack of onions like that, I'd be happier than a tree on Arbor Day! Everyone wants to get their hand in an onion sack like that. Me? I like a nice purple onion, but you...

Melody in the bass. Dark, but still energetic.

Slightly faster version of the other similarly named piece, this one has an extra sense of urgency, but still retains the mystery and wonder bits.<BR>

Almost New Orleans-style; almost march. This is the faster embellished version of the piano solo "Breaktime" (found elsewhere on this site).
