The Silent Film Society of Chicago's own Jay Warren will provide the photoplay score for the unique 21st century-produced silent film THE ARTIST (2011). Warren will compile a musical score based on Ludovic Bource's original score, and implement historic silent film era mood and incidental music by period composers William Axt, J. S. Zamencik, and renowned organist Gaylord Carter. A forty-year veteran of silent film accompaniment, Warren is passionate about preserving silent film music, a genre in danger of "slipping through the cracks."

"The Artist" Director Michel Hazanavicius had the daring idea to make a black-and-white silent film more than eighty years after movies had begun to talk - and then he executed that idea brilliantly. The film had the potential to be a tacky gimmick, but it proved to be a great film with outstanding lead actors Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo and a solid supporting cast.

Logan Theatre audiences attending THE ARTIST will be treated to an authentic 1920s-style film experience, with Warren bringing in his specially designed digital Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ to provide the photoplay accompaniment. The theatre organ - a genuine American phenomena - was the workhorse of the silent film era. Dynamically superior to the piano and more spontaneous than an orchestra, it is truly "the voice of the silent cinema."
