The Scar of Shame/Renèe Baker Project
The Scar of Shame/Renèe Baker Project is a commissioned world premiere of a Renèe Baker score for the 1927 race film The Scar of Shame. Motifs in Baker’s score are inspired by the work of Phil Moore, most prominently his 1939 Suite for Strings composition. Moore was a largely forgotten jazz pianist, orchestral arranger, band leader, and recording artist whose collection of papers and scores are held within the Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University. Baker has an international reputation for her compositions and is known for bringing new life and audiences to the films of early Black filmmakers. The project is presented by IU Cinema, Black Film Center/Archive, Office of the Vice Provost for Research, Collaborative Research, and Creative Activity Fund, the Film Scoring for Visual Media program in the Jacobs School of Music, College Arts and Humanities Institute, and The Media School. Special thanks to Brian Graney.
