_underscore_ is a new intiative between RE:VIVE, EYE Filmmuseum and The Rest is Noise to offer a platform for electronic music producers to explore the world of film scoring. The new collaboration will invite producers to compose and perform new scores for archival films taken from the archives of EYE and The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
The first edition of _underscore_ which debuted on November 11 at EYE Filmmuseum invited, Know V.A., Nadia Struiwigh, and Lamellen to perform their new pieces.
