Rachel Grimes - Marion County 1938


Label Rachel Grimes

Marion County 1938 is a chamber suite commissioned from Rachel Grimes in 2010 by the Center for Home Movies for the silent film "Our Day" by Wallace Kelly of Lebanon, KY. This film and soundtrack was the closing work in the feature length 35 mm film collection by Dwight Swanson called "Amateur Night" highlighting amateur short films from American archives, including short home movies by Richard Nixon and Alfred Hitchcock. Recorded live in a church sanctuary with oboe, clarinet, strings, harp, and piano, Marion County 1938 was released as a tour EP in the fall of 2011. The DVD comes with high-resolution digital music files, the full film "Our Day", and silent film extras of Wallace Kelly's travelogues. “One of American independent music’s few truly inspired technicians.” – The Wire  //
