This was part of an evening of silent avant-garde French films from the 1920s, for which composers were commissioned to write new scores. I chose the film "Lumiere et Ombre" ("Light and Shadow") by Alfred Sandy.
The imagery is abstract and geometric - spheres, triangles, cubes, etc. My intent in the score was to imbue these objects with emotion and character, in the hope that the audience might find something touching about a triangular block sliding across a plane, as I do.
Here is the score to Lumiere et Ombre:
This 4-minute Quicktime video was shot off the projected film at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The quality is quite bad. The audio, however, is a studio recording and should be good. If anyone knows of a better video source for this film, please let me know.
