Principal Investigator Dr. Francesco Finocchiaro and Project Assistant Henriette Engelke recently embarked on a FWF-funded research project to investigate the problem of film music during the silent era in light of contemporary film music criticism.

The project examines historical evidence of a debate which deals with aesthetic, theoretical, and compositional issues of music in cinema during the so-called silent period.
