UnSilent Film Night: Improv Edition!
The New School’s College of Performing Arts invites YOU to the 7th edition of (Un)Silent Film Night, a popular series that combines film with live music!
In an (Un)Silent first, several short films will make up the March 16th program. For each film in this special "Improv Edition", faculty members of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will lead small ensembles in improvisatory performances of new music to short silent films.
Shadows Choose Their Horrors - ensemble led by Marc Ribot
Charlie Chaplin’s The Pawnshop - ensemble led by Kris Davis
Superman a.k.a. The Mad Scientist - ensemble led by Reggie Workman and Andrew Cyrille
The Mechanical Monsters - ensemble led by Reggie Workman and Andrew Cyrille
Previous editions of (Un)Silent Film Night have drawn capacity crowds to the 400-seat Tishman Auditorium and have been hosted by Matthew Broderick, Bill Irwin, Rob Bartlett, Ed Rothstein and Michael Bacon. The series has been critical in advancing the resurgence of film screenings with live music. Previous events in the series have presented the world premieres of works composed for The Birds and The Immigrant (by Nathan Kamal and Alexis Cuadrado respectively), an NYC premiere of a score by Hollywood composer Craig Marks for the film Sherlock, Jr, Charlie Chaplin’s original score for the film, Gold Rush, and more.
