From the New Sounds Live concert series at the World Financial Center recorded in early 2003, hear the Alloy Orchestra performing a new score to the silent film "South." The footage is from the voyage of the Shackleton attempting to cross the South polar ice cap. The Alloy Orchestra, famed for its "rack of junk," (an assemblage of peculiar objects including horseshoes, air-conditioner ducts, trunk springs, and plumbing pipes) is one of the foremost groups performing silent movie scores in this country.
