A new wonderful restoration of the original version of The Battleship Potëmkin is presented with a double audio track, including the original music by Edmund Meisel (1925) and the music by Edison Studio (2017). The work by Edison Studio composers offers a re-interpretation of the movie through the fusion of music, voices in Russian language, electroacoustic and environmental sounds unveiling athmospheres, senses and secret rhythms of Ejzenštejn’s masterpiece. For the composition of the new original soundtrack Edison Studio composers have studied Ėjzenštejn’s complex editing techniques, his theories about audiovisual montage and the various visual rhythm types he used in his movie. It’s a complex and dense soundtrack, which aims at rendering the power of the faces expressions, of gestures, of suspensions, accelerations, symbols, internal and external rhythms, and of the deeply human dimension in which the action of masses and people unravels. Music and sound intertwine in counterpoint with the visual editing in various ways in the 5 acts of the film, re-inventing its audiovisual form in a contemporary way.
