Silence in the Square

September 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Art in the Square presents Silence in the Square: Live Soundtracks and Silent Film.

Inspired by American composer and artist John Cage’s writings, join us for a selection of silent films and live music installation. Bring a picnic, and watch original screenings come to life with the infusion of sound.

In collaboration with curators Ashleigh Burskey and Denis Nye and the following visiting artists: Local electronics enthusiast Galen Richmond will perform a score for the 1902 Georges Méliès film, “A Trip to the Moon”. Patrick Corrigan, known for street-based art performances and videos, will screen “The Secret Adventures of Tom Thumb” by The Bolex Brothers with music and sound effects in collaboration with RJ Miller and Dave Noyes of the RJ Miller Quartet. Following guest artists, composer Denis Nye has created an intricate, improvisational composition to accompany Buster Keaton’s film “The Balloonatic”.
