about

This album is a compilation of tracks put together as a proposed score for the near lost Frankenstein movie, filmed by Edison Studios in 1910.
In a time when moving pictures were considered new and vulgar compared to the respectable plays of the state Edison Studios undertook the challenge to commit the first moving picture version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The intent of this version, as stated in The Edison Kinetogram was, “to concentrate its endeavors upon the mystic and psychological problems”, of Shelley’s “weird tale.” This innovative film, believed to be the first American horror movie, was lost from memory until a series of serendipitous incidents led to the discovery of the lone surviving reel from the hands of a collector in the 1970's.
This new score has been composed in homage to those early pioneers of cinema who have transformed this once “vulgar” medium to the art form it is today.
