_underscore_ is an initiative of the Eye Museum, RE:VIVE (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) and The Rest is Noise (Muziekgebouw’s concert series for adventurous and experimental music) inviting composers of experimental and electronic music to create new scores for silent films from the collections of Eye and Sound and Vision. It gives artists the opportunity to gain experience writing scores, an art form that requires specific skills and gives these lost films a new lease on life, reviving them for contemporary audiences.

Lamellen - Het gestolen huurtcontract (1924, Dick Laan)
Rimer London and Waterlelyck are Lamellen. The duo channel an 80s pastiche with their love of well worn synths and drum machines. Their score for Het gestolen huurcontract accentuates Dick Laan’s slapstick cat and mouse direction and the jubelience of daydreaming teenage summers.
Laura Agnusdei - Benny heeft het aan zijn haart (1926, Dick Laan)
Laura Agnusdei is an Italian saxophonist and student at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague’s Institute of Sonology. A classically train saxophonist she fuses its sound with acoustic, digital and analogue sound sources to craft sonic landscapes that shift between melody and textured narratives. Her score for Benny heeft het aan zijn haart is moody yet playful, leaning heavily on her casio drum machine, it walks a fine line between “yakkity sax” and Blade Runner.
The screening will take place at the Eye Museum in Amsterdam.

About Eye Filmmuseum
Eye Filmmuseum is the Dutch national film institute and museum for film heritage and the art of film in the Netherlands. Eye was founded in 2010 as a result of a merger between four organizations: the Netherlands Filmmuseum, Holland Film, the Filmbank, and the Netherlands Institute for Film Education.
Located in Amsterdam North, Eye manages an internationally recognized collection spanning the entire history of film from the first silent films to the most recent Dutch releases. Eye researches, collects, preserves, digitizes, restores, presents and provides access to a collection that illustrates film art, culture, and heritage relevant to the Netherlands. The collection includes approximately 50,000 films (60% of which are foreign films), but also music scores, photographs, posters, archives from filmmakers and organizations, apparatus, and an extensive library collection.
