Puget Soundtrack: Erin Jorgensen presents The Night of the Hunter
Sat Nov 16: 8.00pm

Series - Puget Soundtrack
Live Music
** Live score by local marimba maestro Erin Jorgensen! **

A tall, handsome preacher  his knuckles eerily tattooed with love and hate  roams the countryside, spreading the gospel and leaving a trail of murdered women in his wake. To Reverend Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum), the work of the Lord has more to do with condemning souls than saving them, especially when his own interests are involved. Now his sights are set on $10,000  and two little children are the only ones who know where it is. Chillldren! the preacher croons to the terrified boy and girl hiding in the cold, dark cellar innocent young lambs who refuse to be led astray.

(Charles Laughton, US, 1955, 92 min)

Description courtesy of Park Circus.

I was stunned the first time I saw this film. It looks more like a piece of theater than a movie, with its chiaroscuro lighting, set design straight from the stage, and wildly dramatic acting and plot. A first-rate thriller, this movie is completely mesmerizing, beautifully creepy, and intrinsically American as a deep evil masquerades itself as the highest good.

I will be using the uniquely haunting acoustic and electronic properties of the five-octave marimba as well as percussion, vocals, and sampler to create an eerie, dreamlike soundtrack, drawing inspiration from Appalachian hymns, Gregorian Chant, drone music & 70s classic rock.
