Abstract:

This article describes the collective experiences of the four composers at Edison Studio, who have recently been working on the soundtracks for two silent movies - four artists involved in the same discipline, working with the same skills and in the same roles. It describes their composition methods, ways in which problems are resolved, the new awareness and understanding they have acquired and the results of work created out of a re-evaluation of individual ways of operating, that seeks to bring together and strengthen the common ground between them.
