The Adventures of Prince Achmed: a Film by Lotte Reiniger

The Adventures of Prince Achmed (Lotte Reiniger, Director) 2008, 2011

I co-scored new music to the silent 1926 film, “The Adventures of Prince Achmed”. Considered the oldest extant feature-length animated film, this movie combines stop-time animation and color tinting to produce a masterful effect. Combining acoustic instruments with vintage 1970’s synthesizers, this music was performed live to the film with the collective called The Sepia Tones.
