The project is the second installment of its kind, following the new
score for the early German horror classic THE CABINET OF DR.
CALIGARI produced by local musicians in 2012.
"Last year's musical interpretations of DR. CALIGARI sounded
awesome. We're very excited to see what everyone comes up with for
AELITA," said Jacob Trombetta, the project's creator.

artists who are contributing to this year's film. The full list of
