“The CAMERA OBSCURA project is intended as an imaginative exploration of any of these modes of interaction between music and image, from the most conventional to the most experimental. Although it is based on something as common as performing live music with classic silent films, it also aims to be a project in “experimental film history”, as well as a creative challenge for musicians who are entrusted with dealing conceptually with the music for a film.

For example: echoes of new tango for a French suburban melodrama, Dixieland jazz for a slapstick comedy classic, and early twentieth-century chamber music to evoke a modernity eclipsed by the official avant-garde — of film and of music.”
