Short Scores: Ranie Ribeiro

In Short Scores, Eye on Sound playfully pushes at the boundaries of film music. We asked a new generation of musicians and composers to create new mini film scores to accompany a short piece of film of their choice from Eye’s collection. Ranie Ribeiro chose In the Friedrichstrasse (1899?).

For Short Scores, Ranie Ribeiro wrote a new soundtrack for In the Friedrichstrasse (1899?), a fragment from Eye's collection.

Can you briefly introduce yourself?

My name is Ranie Ribeiro. Musician and producer from Rotterdam.

Why did you choose this specific film fragment?

What I thought of when I saw this fragment is the feeling of walking back in time. That may sound strange, but in combination with the image that remains nicely consistent, you notice new details better. This gave me the freedom to build something here.

How did you tackle the project?

I played the fragment on a big screen and improvised different melodies on my harp until I found something that I felt fit the image. From there I could work it out layer by layer until I was satisfied with the end result.
