Not So Silent Cinema and the New River Ensemble are excited to be in Atlanta this January for a program of classic Buster Keaton shorts with original music:
"The Haunted House" (1921) "The Electric House" (1922) "Cops" (1922) "One Week" (1920)
"Cooneyʼs original scores provide a 1920ʼs urban-Americana soundscape that combines ragtime, blues, bluegrass, Klezmer and hot jazz."
Stumbling, falling, tumbling and running from cops, ghosts, trains and electric houses Buster Keaton delivers up the breath-taking stunts and antics that made him one of the greatest figures in early film history.
Not-So-Silent-Cinema follows him through 1920's landscapes with a soundscape of American roots music combining blues, jazz, ragtime, old-time, Klezmer, and even a little classical music, composed by Brendan Cooney.
Not-So-Silent-Cinema features new scores to classic film with rotating casts of musicians. This tour features the New River Ensemble, a genre-stretching chamber music ensemble. New York clarinetist Martha Hyde is a veteran of Broadway, Radio City Music Hall and the Gotham Wind Symphony. Cellist Lisa Liske-Doorandish is an in-demand performer and teacher from the hills of southern Virginia. New York pianist and composer Brendan Cooney is the master-mind behind Not-So-Silent-Cinema. The trio regularly presents chamber music concerts, live film scores and educational workshops.
