This has already got a mention in the comments to the post on the upcoming Lillian Gish Film Festival, but it’s well worth highlighting. It’s an extract from D.W. Griffith’s Broken Blossoms (1919) with a radical score from Brian Traylor, which featured at the festival. The use of electronica, noise, and the absence of anything melodic might prove to be a bit of a challenge over a period of time, but I find something quite hypnotic about it in this extract form at least. Others may beg to differ?
There are two other clips posted by Traylor on YouTube:
Swirling noises represent the assorted miserable options in life available to Lillian Gish.
Look out here for the electronic growls representing Donald Crisp’s speech.
