Pianist and composer Donald Sosin discusses the art of performing live accompaniment for the great works of the silent film era with Matthew Bernstein, chair of Emory's Film & Media Studies department.
Sosin is one of the premier silent film accompanists in the world. He has performed at major international film festivals, as well as at institutions in the U.S., including the Harvard Film Archive, the Museum of the Moving Image and the Museum of Modern Art, where he served as the resident silent film accompanist in the late 1970s and where he continues to play. He has composed scores for over a thousand silent films.
