«When you watch this silent
film with its new music track by
the Khoury Project, it immediately becomes obvious that these two forms of cultural expression were made for each other.» Benoit Basirico

 

“The music of the Khoury Project has produced a rich and captivating album, which combines various melodies and rhythmical elements, traditional and modern music to follow the chronological order of the story in the film; a wonderful way to re-immerse yourself in the story, even in the absence of images.” – Benoit Basirico
