Welcome

Welcome to the Silent Film Sound & Music Archive. Since 2014, we’ve been digitizing and sharing printed music for the silent cinema. Today the Archive contains individual pieces of sheet music, scores, collections of short pieces, also called photoplay albums, cue sheets, instruction manuals, and more. Learn more about this repertoire here, find out about what we include in the Archivehow to cite the materials you find here, what’s new in the Archive and what we’re up to, and how you can help keep the Archive going.
