    DRACULA by Philip Glass & the Kronos Quartet


    Phillip Glass did a score in recent years for the largely music-free DRACULA (1931).

    I do not think it succeeds as a score to that film, because it seems an ill fit, imo, not really being needed a lot of the time, and I am not sure if the eeriness of the film is actually aided by a deliberate silence.

    But I do think it kind of works in terms of being a musical composition in it's own right.

    Glass' score is brilliant, but I watched the movie once with the score, and hated it. The music is very good, but the movie works better mostly soundless. It enhances the gothic atmosphere of the film, whereas the score, I think, takes away from it.
