NYU AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY
In April 2010, three beautiful silent-era films from Spain featured live musical accompaniments conducted by Gillian Anderson and performed on two pianos by Steinhardt alums Max Midroit and Ju-Ping Song. Composers Sergi Casanelles, Elias Constantopedos, Shruti Kumar, Dosia McKay, Mira Eom, and Inyoung Park, under the direction of Peggy Parsons, Director of the National Gallery's Film Division, were commissioned to create period style scores.
The lively streets, cafés, and neighborhoods of Barcelona provide the setting for many well-known native artists, musicians, writers, and cultural icons of the 1920s. The new musical scores drew inspiration from Catalonia’s composers and reshaped their musical world to create a new synthesis.
In Playa y Costa Brava (1934), city dwellers embark for the tranquil ambience of the beach, and The Electric Hotel (1908) provides a delightful futuristic vision inspired by the renowned "cinémagician" Georges Méliès. The show, noted in the Washington Post and in press throughout Spain, was produced by Ron Sadoff and Gillian Anderson.
ORPHAN FILM FESTIVAL (2008 & 2010)
Providing original music and music editing services, the Film Scoring Program and the Department of Cinema Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts collaborated for the 2008 and 2010 Orphan Film Symposiums. For the 2010 Symposium, film scoring majors Agatha Kasprzyk and Rafaël Leloup composed an original electroacoustic score for A Trip Down Market Street (1905), which was performed in a live, accompanied screening at the SVA Theatre (formerly the chelsea West Cinema and originally the RKO 23rd St. Theatre). For the 2008 Symposium, students composed original music for films, including one depicting on a 1968 protest of Dow Chemical Corporation. In addition, Cinema Studies and Film Scoring students collaborated on a variety of foreign films, providing music informed by culturally and historically based research.
