Original Méliès film scores - Pittsburgh premiere
We kick off our 2020 Listen Locally season with a unique audio-visual experience - the Pittsburgh premiere of Kyle Simpsons original scores to George Méliès silent films: A Trip to the Moon (1902) and The Kingdom of Fairies (1903).
Award-winning Pittsburgh composer and international artist, Kyle Simpson D.M.A. and his chamber orchestra will perform live with Pittsburgh's Redline String Quartet to a screening of Méliès two most famous silent films.
Méliès early twentieth century costumes, sets, and signature optical tricks are crafted together with Simpsons eclectic compositional style with influences of Debussy, Stravinsky, Steve Reich and a nod to the cinematic sounds of John Williams and Alexandre Desplat. Travel through time with us and rediscover these brilliant films with the uniquely 21st century concept of marrying contemporary music with classic film.
