Buster Keaton Reloaded

The Edison Studio collective, with the support of the Italian Society of Authors and Publishers (SIAE) for the project “SIAE – Classics of Today“, and with the collaboration of the Cineteca di Bologna (Film Archive of Bologna) and the Romaeuropa Festival, organizes the “Sounds of Silences” International Competition of Musical Composition for the Moving Image. The aim of the competition is to stimulate musical creativity in its interaction with the audiovisual media, particularly for the reinterpretation of historical silent films and the creation of new soundtracks, with a special concern for timbre as in today’s instrumental, electronic and electroacoustic music. Sounds of Silences organizers’aim is to stimulate the finalists to make a valid contribution towards redefining the meaning, aesthetics and conceptual structures of cinema before the advent of soundtracks, not simply by “accompanying” the images on the screen, but by revealing their original hidden content, thereby giving a new voice to what was previously silent.
