Gary Lucas, Cinematic Orchestra & The BQE Project playing live silent movie scores in NYC this week (free)
WNYC’s long-awaited annual winter film series returns to the World Financial Center featuring classic silent films set to innovative and energetic scores by Gary Lucas, the BQE Ensemble, and The Cinematic Orchestra.
Each night, starting at 7PM, experience a different film and its inventive new music score.
On Tuesday night, Feb. 10, Gary Lucas performs ghostly improvisational solo guitar for three surrealist films: “Entr’acte”, “Ballet Mecanique”, and “The Cameraman’s Revenge.”
Wednesday evening, Feb. 11, the BQE Project‘s palette of exotic instruments from Middle Eastern drums to mandolin accompanies “The Golem.”
And on Thursday night, Feb. 12, the Cinematic Orchestra‘s moody, electronica-tinged jazz-funk follows “Man with a Movie Camera.”
And it’s all FREE!
