Multiplying musicians, unheard chattering actors, mysterious gramophones: listening to 'silent films'

Multiplying musicians, unheard chattering actors, mysterious gramophones: listening to 'silent films'
Date
28/11/2017 (18:15)
Location:
Boilerhouse Auditorium
Description
Although the moving pictures of early cinema were in a sense silent, they almost always had some sort of music and/or sound created for them within the space of exhibition; they also typically implied sound. Even when they ran unaccompanied — which they sometimes did — 'silent films' begged a species of virtual listening on the part of the audience. Early musical trick films and comedies on musical topics are particularly fascinating examples of this phenomenon, because they sometimes involved imaginary visualisations of the marvels and problems of new sound technologies.
