Silent Alice is the reimagining of the 1915 silent film, “Alice in Wonderland”, scored by Michael Oscillate in his trademark and recognisable style. The hauntingly dreamlike arrangement adds an incredibly eerie layer to the immersive experience, especially when accompanied by the visuals of the film itself. The soundtrack alone, however, is full of interesting and inspired choices in terms of overall musical direction, and is an excellent collection of music with or without the aid of the visual. A project spanning almost three quarters of an hour, Silent Aliceblends 17 pieces of music together in a beautiful patchwork that shines most when listened to in its entirety. From the almost orchestral sounding The White Rabbit, to the intimidating bellows of The Gryphon, this project strikes an appropriate balance between cohesion and uniquenessof the tracks. If “Alice in Wonderland” were to franchise into the horror film industry, then it is precisely this soundtrack that would assure its success.
