Mira Calix scores Hitchcock’s silent film ‘Champagne’

As part of the British Film Institute’s “Genius Of Hitchcock” project, Mira Calix has been commissioned by BFI Southbank to write a new score for Champagne, the bubbly story of a 1920′s It-Girl celebrity heiress.

Mira Calix said “the synopsis of Champagne, created in 1928, could quite easily be an entry on TMZ in 2012. It’s this very synchronicity that has informed my approach the creation of a new score for this silent film. With a mixture of electronics, voice and classical instrumentation, i hope to reveal the very contemporaneous of Hitchcock’s thoroughly modern tail.”

Mira Calix joins a growing roster of British musical talent who have composed scores for the new silent Hitchcock restorations including Nitin Sawhney (the Lodger) Soweto Kinch (the ring) Neil Brand (Blackmail) and Daniel Patrick Cohen (The Pleasure Garden).

This was screened and accompanied by Mira’s live score at BFI Southbank on September 27th.

The screening, accompanied by live score performed by Mira Calix, is available for suitable audio/visual events. Get in touch with your proposal!
