Still from Thomas A. Edison's "Cupid & Psyche"

A mashup of one of Thomas A. Edison's Films with a "Time Tone Poem" by me. Find loads of early films at the U.S. Library of Congress. Click HERE to watch & listen.



  1. Beautiful! How did you create the soundtrack? There's something mechanical underneath the bells... So hard to put a finger on it, but it's a fascinating sound scape! Lovely set to picture.

    Recorded with a Schoeps stereo xy pair to .wav file.


Whoa. Hey. Hi. Talk to me.
