Calling all aspiring film composers! Houston Public Media and Discovery Green invite you to showcase your musical talents in a competition designed especially for silent film. The Houston Public Media Composer Contest offers area composers the opportunity to reinterpret classic silent film for a new audience through original music. To enter, submit an original musical composition scored for one of two designated silent film movie clips. The contest is open now through July 31, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. In addition to a cash prize, two winning composers will have the opportunity to present their original musical score live on Friday, November 14, 2014 as a part of Houston Public Media’s Silent Film Concert Series at Discovery Green as well as a studio recording of their piece created by Houston Public Media.
