May 16

With a live musical score by GRID!

Friday, May 16 at 07:00PM

This canonical, 1927 German Expressionist sci-fi opus by Fritz Lang is accompanied by a new score from GRID, the Seattle-based live music-to-film project founded by drummer Jen Gilleran.

Each GRID performance is different from the last, as Gilleran changes the instrumentation to serve the film, the space in which it is seen, and/or to offer fresh interpretations of the work. Past GRID-scored films have included the works of Maya Deren, Ilya Chaiken, Alan Lomax, Pete Seeger and Mary Ellen Bute at Central Cinema, The Royal Room, The Good Shepherd Chapel and the Racer Cafe. Band members have included drummers Allison Miller, Gregg Keplinger, Don Berman, Andrew Rudd and Sean Lane; guitarists CJ Stout and Rob Price; saxophonists Neil Welch, Kate Olson and Dick Valentine; keyboardists James Han and Aaron Otheim and bassist Joe Malcomb.

This performance with Metropolis will include sections of live improvisation, with the intention of bringing the silent film era-theater experience to a "real time" interpretation of the work. First presented in August 2013 at the Henry Art Gallery. Special ticket pricing: $12 general admission.
