City of Cinema: Paris 1850–1907

Exhibition Soundtrack

The City of Cinema: Paris 1850–1907 exhibition soundtrack traces the evolution of film as an art form inextricably linked to its birthplace. The music transports listeners to the streets of Paris; toy pianos and mechanical musical instruments echo the live scores that accompanied the earliest movie screenings; and a selection of experimental music mirrors the space where experimentation and imagination meets filmmaking as a craft and commercial enterprise. 

This exhibition soundtrack was assembled by dublab’s Mark “Frosty” McNeill in collaboration with LACMA.
