As the dark (but not the cold, not yet!) settles in around us in Upstate NY, I am thrilled to be scoring a silent movie for the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival. I am working with local musicians Tzar (Willie B and Michael Stark) to create an original, operatic soundtrack for the 1928 film “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Jean Epstein. We’ve got 3 synths, 2 gongs, 1 piano, 1 organ, 1 guitar, 1700 drums, and one opera singer for this performance next Friday, November 13 at the Cinemapolis in downtown Ithaca at 6:15 pm. I hope to see you there!
