The ten Commandments, by Cecil B. Demille


This Easter 2021, the non-profit cultural organization Reboot launched “a modern soundtrack for Cecil B. Demille’s classic 1923 silent film, The ten Commandments, with Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Steven Drozd (Flaming Lips) and Scott Amendola. ”



Reboot writes: “Berlin, Drozd and Amendola created a new and important score for the Exodus story, musically accompanying Moses on leaving Egypt and arriving in the desert where he receives the Ten Commandments. Cecil B. DeMille's first attempt to tell the story of the Ten Commandments was in the year of the Silent Age of 1923.

The film (now in the public domain) is divided into two stories: the story of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt and a - somewhat related - melodrama of "today".
