Project Information
  Soundproof Movies Institute
  Film, Music
  We feel the bringing together of improvisation and silent cinema is an
unexplored niche full of untapped artistic and entrepreneurial liquor. Soundproof Movies Institute aims to explore the power that live, natural, interactive film-scoring can exert on people’s emotions: with an unrehearsed, organic music score the same film which was once silent can now be understood in a different way.
And the beauty of the Soundproof Movies Institute is that no two performances will be the same! How we react to the activity on screen depends on how we performers are feeling at that precise time.

Lack of the prepared material and spontaneity on the stage give a touch of risk and spice which attract us the most. This also means that an aspect of chaos would automatically be introduced into the performance, rendering the whole experience even more on-edge and exciting.

We focus the main point of our activity on the European silent cinema, again totally unknown and undiscovered compared to the American silent movie world, with its big stars: Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd.
  Approximately 90-120 minutes (with possible interval between films)
