From the very beginning, musicwas regarded as an indispensable accompaniment; when the Lumiere films were shown atthe first public film exhibition in the United States in February 1896, they wereaccompanied by piano improvisations on popular tunes. At first, the music played bore nospecial relationship to the films; an accompaniment of any kind was sufficient.Within a very short time, however, the incongruity of playing lively music to asolemnfilm became apparent, and film pianists began to take some care in matching their piecesto the mood of the film.Trang chủ:| Email hỗ trợ:[email protected] | Hotline:024 22426188

For a number of years the selection of music for each filmprogram rested entirely in the hands of the conductor or leader of the orchestra, and veryoften the principal qualification for holding such a position was not skill or taste so muchas the ownership of a large personal library of musical pieces. Since the conductorseldom saw the films until the night before they were to be shown (if, indeed, theconductor was lucky enough to see them then), the musical arrangement was normallyimprovised in the greatest hurry.To help meet this difficulty, film distributing companies started the practice of publishingsuggestions for musical accompaniments. In 1909, for example, the Edison Companybegan issuing with their films such indications of mood as "pleasant, "sad", "lively". Thesuggestions became more explicit, and so emerged the musical cue sheet containingindications of mood, the titles of suitable pieces of music, and precise directions to showwhere one piece led into the next. Certain films had music especiallycomposedforthem. The most famous of these early special scores was that composed and arranged forD.W. Griffith's film Birth of a Nation, which was released in 1915.
