WexCast: Sue Harshe on scoring silent films for Zoom

Tue, Dec 04, 2018

Zoom Family Film Festival, the flagship event in our program of cultural offerings for all ages, takes place on Saturday, December 8, offering a full morning and afternoon of fun events and international films for kids of all ages. Sue Harshe, Columbus musician and cofounder of the seminal band Scrawl, has been a regular Zoom collaborator on live, original soundtracks for silent films. The music you just heard is from one of Sue’s Zoom soundtracks, and she’ll be back this year to live-accompany the Buster Keaton comedy classic, Sherlock Jr. on Saturday at 4 PM.

For this Wexcast, Sue sits down with associate film/video curator Chris Stults to discuss her process for creating new soundtracks for works from the early days of cinema.
