Alfred Hitchcock Music Program

Blackmail is a silent movie from 1929.

Alice White is the daughter of a shopkeeper in London. Her boyfriend, Frank Webber, is a Scotland Yard detective. Alice kills a man in self defense, after the man tries to sexually assault her. When Frank is assigned to the case, he quickly determines that Alice is the killer. He covers up for her, but things get nasty when a petty criminal starts to blackmail Alice.

This silent movie is accompanied by music that is especially composed for the film by 6 composing students of the Sjuman School of Music.

The 6 students who composed the music for Blackmail are:

  1. Asti Fajriani
  2. Elang Eka Banu
  3. Philip Leo
  4. Dewi Mulya Sari
  5. Oktav Tumbel
  6. Christopher Gunawan

The music will be performed by the Trinity Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Conductor Nathania Karina.


Blackmail is thoroughly enjoyable and sets the scene for the future of his films through narratives and plot-developments we have seen many times.
