This morning I've been looking for materials on Youtube for a series of lessons I'm planning to teach next term about 20th century classical music. I thought one way into "atonal" music might be to get a group to create some to fit to a silent horror film - so I started searching for a suitable film.
It doesn't take long to get distracted when searching Youtube! I soon came across this and I decided I just had to post it here. It's the sort of thing I'm looking for - sort of. I'll certainly add it to my list of possibles. I know very little about film and I certainly didn't realise moving films were made as early as 1896, as this was. Pay a 3-minute visit to George Melies' The Haunted Castle and you too will have seen what's widely billed as "the world's first horror film". Make sure you're sat down and, if of a nervous disposition, not alone...
