The Sound With Silents

2 posts in this topic

How do you most enjoy watching silent films? With: 1)solo piano 2)small jazzy quartet 3) grand theatre organ 4) full orchestra. Do you mind the added sound effects particularly with comedies with assorted honks, squawks. whistles etc.? Lastly, who is your favorite music orchestrator for silents. i.e. like Carl Davis?

i don't mind some muscial or sound effect accompaniments to scenes and acts that really requires one.

 

but for the most part, the constant, non-stop musical background (especially the piano) completely irritates me; hence, whenever i watch silents, the sound is muted.
