AASO records soundtrack for DVD of silent filmBY JENN MCKEE
News Arts WriterRecently, for four days, more than 20 members of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and director Gillian Anderson holed up in the Michigan Theater to record a musical soundtrack for the forthcoming DVD version of Georg Wilhelm Pabst's 1929 silent film, "Pandora's Box.''The German film - based on a play by F. Wedekind, which tells the tragic story of a dancer and prostitute named Lulu - catapulted its star, Louise Brooks, to international acclaim and made her an icon of the Jazz Age.

I wonder if any of the members of the orchestra knew that some of Brooks' silent films were shown at this historic theater in the 1920's?
