Eye on Sound: The Last of the Mohicans (soundwave)

The Last of the Mohicans

Clarence Brown, Maurice Tourneur / US, 1920 / 75 min.

This Western/adventure film tells a tale based on a true story that took place around 1757, when the French and the British were waging war against one another in North America, each side trying to recruit the various local Native Americans to their cause. Composition students from the HKU’s Music and Technology programme composed the music, which is performed live by the Keuris Ensemble conducted by Henry Kelder.
