The Big Screen: ‘Frankenstein’ Gets A Score

by Stephen Becker 25 Oct 2018 7:00 AM

One of the original horror movies gets the live-score treatment from the Dallas Winds



When we watch horror movies, it’s the creepy music that sets us up for the big scares. So it’s notable that one of the original horror movies — 1931’s “Frankenstein” – doesn’t have any score at all. That changes next week when the Dallas Winds perform a newly conceived score alongside the film. This week we talk about how music works to put us on edge with Jerry Junkin, who will conduct the score.
