New technologies and old rites: dissonance between picture and music in readings of Joris Ivens's 'Rain'

By Ed Hughes


This essay, by composer Ed Hughes, deals with a 1941 film music composition by Eisler for the short film Regen (1929) by Dutch director Joris Ivens. In 2001, Hughes was commissioned to compose a new score for this piece, and in his contribution he investigates the issue of rhythm in relation to Eisler's original score. Hughes questions whether "advanced musical resources necessarily correspond with advanced visual resources" and concludes that Eisler's score led to a "dissonance between musical and visual images.
