Mark Jacobs, music composer has recently completed a music soundtrack to the 1924 silent film, Wolkenphänomen von Maloja, “The Cloud Phenomenon of Maloja” by filmmaker Arnold Frack (1889 – 1974).

The soundtrack consists of stereo electronic music with a live alphorn duet. Mark and his SOU music colleague, Dr. Cynthia Hutton, will be premiering the work at the Northwest Horn Symposium at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA this coming weekend. They will be performing the alphorn parts in synchronization with the film and electronic soundtrack.
