Work Overview

Silent Motion is a lyrical, critical, and often amusing guide to society's expectations as to the proper place of music in film. Focusing on the silent film era as an historical juncture which all but sealed the fate of film scoring, Iolini adjusts the lense and turns up the volume to assert music's potential as more than just a supporting player. Iolini creates strange, wonderful and at times touching music from sampled projectors, pianos and a 1927 fotoplayer. Silent Motion lampoons those who would set up hierarchies in art.
