new release: Lee Rosevere - Fall of the House of Usher

For this Halloween, we're pleased to present a new original score by Lee Rosevere written for the 1928 silent public domain film "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Melville Webber and J.S. Watson Jr, based on the poem by Edgar Allan Poe.

This early and fine example of avant-garde cinema is a visually-rich film, and offers many possibilities and challenges when it comes to the music, especially since it doesn't follow conventional storytelling techniques.

You can watch the film with the music below, or visit the website to download the film and/or the score.
