In 1928, Alec Wilder created his first musical score for a 13-minute silent film, The Fall of the House of Usher. This score was never finalized, but it bears great historical significance in the style of the music, and how it plays off of the visual cues in the film. However, the original score only survives today in the form of a continuity draft and an incomplete orchestration. The goal of this project is to reunite the original score with the film using music and film analysis, historical research, and interpretation. Many programs, including Finale 2014 and Adobe Premiere Pro, were used to edit and synchronize a realized audio file of the score with an archived copy of the film.
