Battleship Potemkin, a masterpiece whose final reading is yet to come, is back with a new soundtrack created by the composers collective Edison Studio in 2017. Russian-speaking voices, digital sounds, orchestral instruments and a radical research into noise, all contribute to give new strength to Eisenstein’s film, whose first screening took place in Moscow in 1925. We hear officers ordering sailors to eat rotten meat, the loud noise of the mutiny, the terrible pounding of the Tsar’s army as they carry out a massacre. After Edmund Meisel (the author of the original soundtrack), Dmitri Shostakovich and Pet Shop Boys, here is a new addition to the endless list of possible soundtracks for the most avant-garde silent film in the history of cinema.
