Abstract
The article analyses a spreadsheet that accompanied Drifters (1929) on the film's release. It offers advice to guide musicians and projectionists on how to accompany Grierson's silent documentary; and the article sets the several alternatives it specifies in the context of the transition from music played live in cinemas to the use of recorded sound.
