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...

A short piece for small orchestra. The flutes play off the bassoon well. The B section includes a pleasant string theme. This piece culminates in a nice, easy ending.<BR>

Darkly plodding, this staccato piano piece is the tense setting for the classic silent film scene: the heroine is tied to the train tracks, the steam engine train plugging along towards her. The chug-a-chug feel is maintained by a tense hammering of the chords in triplets, depicting machinery or chaos...

An all percussion tension-sustaining piece... More chaotic than symmetric, but enough repeated themes to keep it cohesive.<BR>

Quiet tremolo strings that build slightly to an anti-climax.
