Silent Film Scores

In conjunction with Brendan’s silent-film-scoring project Not So Silent Cinema, NRE performs live music to classic silent film. We have performed new original scores to many short comedies by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. There are plans in the works to add some new scores to some of Ossi Oswalda’s wild Weimar films in the coming year.

NRE’s silent films scores are ambitious and creative new works that combine many strands of American music to capture the sonic landscape of the urban lifestyle of the teens and twenties. For trailers and other info:
