Outstanding performance last night from Yoann Mylonakis and his collaborators Sarah Gross, Louis McHugh and Matt Gianotti, they performed an improvised contemporary musical score to the 1920 silent classic Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and it completely transformed the film!
It’s amazing to compare the feel and mood of the film with the new soundtrack against the – now dated – original score and how the new score really brought out the texture and edginess of the film! Absolutely absorbing and an experiment well worth repeating!
We’ll have some footage soon (all going well in the edit!) in the meantime here’s some stills!
