TheaterJones writes on composer Brian Satterwhite, and the exciting new DCS silent film programs
“Composer Brian Satterwhite on his music for the 1921 film A Sailor-Made Man, which will be performed by Dallas Chamber Symphony at City Performance Hall” by Gregory Sullivan Isaacs of TheaterJones.
TheaterJones publishes a piece on the Dallas Chamber Symphony’s new silent film score series and composer Brian Satterwhite.
“Films from the silent movie era, which began to fade out in 1927 with the release of The Jazz Singer, were almost always accompanied by live music. Sometimes it was just a pianist; in bigger houses it was a theater organ; and it the premier houses, an orchestra. Since then, almost all new releases of the old silent films have a newly composed musical accompaniment.”
“The Dallas Chamber Symphony, in keeping with this tradition while striking out in a new direction, has commissioned composer Brian Satterwhite, who is based in Austin, to write a new score to accompany a film for their concert on Tuesday at the City Performance Hall. Satterwhite holds a degree with dual majors in Film Scoring and Composition from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He has written scores for more than 100 short and feature films.” ~ Gregory Sullivan Isaacs
