Yeah, this is going to be pretty awesome. I am on the coast and yet I am up at midnight posting this b/c I forgot to before I left. I don't want you to miss out & I don't want to quit beach bumming, so I will let Galen take it from here…
From Galen/Director – Filmusik
Hey there,Ãƒâ€š I wanted to send a note about our film + music performances next Wednesday and Friday.Ãƒâ€š It's going to be a really good time,Ãƒâ€š their are some really great musicians and voice actors performing and the film itself is an absolute classic, not Casablanca classic, a different much more Ed Wood kind of classic. Here's the info about it:
FILMUSIK: Plan 9 From Outer Space
On the 27th and 29th, teams of musicians, composers, voice actors and sound designers are congregating in the pit at the Hollywood Theatre to premiere a new soundtrack to Ed Wood's botched masterpiece of sci-fi cinema: Plan 9 From Outer Space.
The original strings + electronica score is performed live to the film by the Classical Revolution PDX string quartet and Sugar Short Wave. The film is dubbed in the pit by a cast of voice actors from the Willamette Radio Workshop with sound effects and foley by Heather Perkins.
Vampires, UFOs and purple pajama-wearing Aliens loom on the screen as the musicians bow, pluck and pound away furiously at the collaborative composition of Portland based composers Galen Huckins and Sugar Shortwave.Ãƒâ€š Our restored and colorized print of the film provided courtesy of Legend Films.Ãƒâ€š Filmusik promotes live performance over prerecorded media by presenting new venues for musicians and composers.
It's going to be a good time.Ãƒâ€š There's no better way to appreciate Ed Wood's visionary disaster than under the bows, batons, faders and pop-screens of our crack team of re-interpreters.
It starts at 7pm.
May 27th + 29th
Tickets $10. Students & Seniors $8
