That sound that was impossible to make then, in 1927, can be heard now, almost a century later, or in the years in which the story of the film is set. Edison Studio, an extremely expert collective of composers-performers, has created a new soundtrack for the most visionary of silent films: Metropolis, restored in the most complete version ever found. In the composition, vocal. instrumental, mechanical sounds interact with each other and with electronic and ambient sounds: sounds created ad hoc, but also drawn from sound sources borrowed from objets trouvés, from nature and the history of music. Researching and experimenting, once again, possible and “impossible” sonorities.
