Silents: Contemporary Scores for Classic Silent Films Silents: Contemporary Scores for Classic Silent Films CD (1997)
CD Check Availability  Details
Alloy Orchestra discography The first album from the Alloy Orchestra, a Boston-based trio devoted to the creation of new soundtracks for vintage silent films led by the late Caleb Sampson, is a sampler of passages from a variety of scores intended more as an overview of what the group can do than a complete artistic statement of its own. The opening "Plain Crazy," the complete score to a five-minute comedy short, has a manic giddiness comparable to Raymond Scott's wilder work (the use of duck call at one point sounds like a direct Scott homage; a similar passage using a squeak toy recalls the Bonzo Dog Band's "Jollity Farm") and sounds like it's probably a sterling example of "Mickey Mousing," or having the score follow the on-screen action. The three ...
Masters Of Slapstick Masters Of Slapstick CD (1999)
CD Check Availability  Details
Alloy Orchestra songs MASTERS OF SLAPSTICK contains original musical accompaniment for the silent films EASY STREET, ONE WEEK and BIG BUSINESS. The three-member Alloy Orchestra dedicates this music to the great comedians of the early 1900s: Buster Keaton, Laurel & Hardy, and Charlie Chaplin. Specializing in producing new background soundtracks for old-time films, the "orchestra" uses lots of imagery and comedic repast to enhance these themes, which a CD-ROM version ...
Lonesome Lonesome CD (1995)
CD Check Availability  Details
Alloy Orchestra CD discography The Alloy Orchestra's soundtrack for what has been called America's last great silent film is probably their finest extended work. The 1928 film, by Hungarian émigré Pal Fejos, follows the story of Mary and Jim, two lonely people in an unnamed big city who meet by chance at an amusement park and spend an idyllic afternoon together before being pulled away from each other by an enormous throng of people. It's a terribly depressing film with moments of genuine beauty. The score, led by group mastermind Caleb Sampson, has a similarly elegiac feel, moving subtly from dark, repetitive segments like ...

New Music for Silent Films New Music for Silent Films CD (1994)
CD $16.29 Buy It  Details
Alloy Orchestra CD discography All songs written by Alloy Orchestra except "Deep Water" (Neil Leonard). A splendid collection of compositions from scores created by Alloy Orchestra (keyboard player Caleb Sampson, percussionist Ken Winokur, and accordionist/percussionist Terry Donahue, with prominent appearances by saxophonist Neil Leonard.) Fitting new music to silent movies is a tricky business that involves producing wall-to-wall sound without it being overly intrusive for a good part of the time. The selections here indicate a great deal of expertise along with the requisite musical ability. A large percussion array is used to extremely good effect on many of the tracks, while Sampson puts his ...
