A film is nothing without its soundtrack. Onscreen images take on a whole new meaning with sounds behind them. That’s the idea at the heart of the Silent Music Revival series. The monthly event screens a classic silent short film while a local band plays music to accompany it. The band doesn’t see the film before the event and must create an improvised score on the spot. The event originally began in Rumors Boutique by local musician Jameson Price, who wanted to show off his love for silent movies and promote the local music scene, and it’s gained a steady following of fans. This month’s show features a holiday theme with the 1913 film “The Insects Christmas” and 1922’s “The Frozen North,” being played with a music score by indie-noise group the Snowy Owls (pictured), who have been known to captivate audiences with their fuzzy rock sounds. The Silent Music Revival featuring the Snowy Owls will project at Gallery5 on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 8 p.m. Free.
