Lecture: Tina Chancey

March 7, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Machaut Meets Fairbanks: Making Early Music Scores for Silent Films

Hesperus’s first live score to Robin Hood debuted in 2003 followed by The Mark of Zorro and three other similarly accompanied films. The current project, Nosferatu, mixes German medieval and renaissance music, Balkan flutes and Romani fiddling, and electronic sounds. Tina Chancey explains how she chooses the music, tailors it to the film, and how the group improvises and coordinates film and music in performance.

Estimated run time: 30 minutes, followed by a Q&A.
