Join us as local musician, Neal Smith, presents his soundtrack to "The Land Beyond the Sunset" and discusses the process of creating an original score.
Film historian William K. Everson called The Land Beyond the Sunset "the screen's first genuinely lyrical film." Originally released 1912 by the studios of Thomas Edison, the film was given a new life in 2000 when it was added to the National Film Registry and included in a now out-of-print DVD set from the National Film Archives Foundation titled "Treasures from American Film Archives." The 15-minute long film has recently been given a new soundtrack which was composed, arranged, performed, and recorded by Davenport musician Neal Smith. Smith will present the film with its new soundtrack and will discuss the history of the film and the process of composing for it.
Trax from the Stax is funded by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library.
