“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” with Live Improvised Score by Dave Harrington at Southampton Arts Center
October 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - October 9, 2017 @ 2:00 pm$20
Following their sold-out music performance collaboration celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Joshua Light Show at New York University’s Skirball Center on September 8, 2017, the Dave Harrington Group will be performing its mesmerizing live improvised score to the 1920 German expressionist cinema masterpiece – The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The series of cinema/live music performances are presented by the Patron Hosts Art and Music Lounge, in association with the Southampton Arts Center, on Sunday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m..
The Dave Harrington Group will take the audience on a sonic odyssey transcending the time between Caligari’s 1920 original creation as an iconic classic cinema masterpiece of the silent era – to a timeless contemporary free jazz, drone, ambient musical expression – replete with haunting sonic imagery designed to resonate with today’s audiences.
Harrington, originally of the electronic duo group Darkside with collaborator Nicolas Jaar, received critical acclaim in the indie-electronic music scene. With The Dave Harrington Group, he continues his musical journey with forays into experimental rock, progressive jazz, and ambient electronics joined by Andrew Fox on synthesizer and processed vocals, and Samer Ghadry on drums and percussion to round out the talented musicians of this eclectic electric orchestra.
