Sound of Silents – MusicTown
Sound of Silents is a new programme of rarely-seen, silent films made in Dublin over six decades. As part of MusicTown Festival the films will now be presented with a series of live improvised scores by 5 leading contemporary musicians.
The musicians, all luminaries in their fields, will breathe new life into these old films with a range of soundscapes from traditional to electronic music using woodwind, percussion, turntables, fiddle and electric guitar.
The programme includes professional and amateur film, some fictional, some factual, some black and white, some colour but all made in or about Dublin and its people.
