Le Voyage Dans La Lune- Air, 2012
Perhaps the most famous early silent film is the French "Le Voyage Dans La Lune", or "A Trip To the Moon". For years it has lacked an original soundtrack, but now the French electronic group Air has released their own soundtrack to it. The disc is just over half an hour long, and some of the tracks aren't meant for the soundtrack, just meant to fill the space of an album. But that doesn't mean it's throwaway filler type stuff; if you listen to the album by itself, it seems like the whole thing is meant for the movie. And the songs work well. This movie soundtrack is easily listenable on its own.
