New Sounds Live Silent Film Scores

Sunday, July 21, 2013

From the Alloy Orchestra's most recent three-night residency at the World Financial Center in February 2011, we'll listen to selections from some of their original film scores including Douglas Fairbanks' "The Black Pirate."  The Alloy Orchestra is just an orchestra of three -Terry Donahue, Roger Miller, Ken Winokur- whose instruments include their famous "rack of junk" (scrap metal transformed into percussion) together with electronic synthesizers and more.  We'll hear their original scores for the 1920 Buster Keaton film, "One Week"  and the 1917 Chaplin film, "Easy Street," and more.
