Devil Music's Halloween Tour: Live Music for Spooky Silents
The guys at Devil Music Ensemble just e-mailed to let me know about some October shows where they'll be performing original soundtracks to silent movies. They're mostly doing 'Nosferatu' (one of the scariest movies ever made, if you ask me), with a little 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' thrown in.
They'll be in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts this weekend; in New York City for Halloween; and in Pennsylvania and Delaware in early November. Full schedule here.
Here's a taste of their score to 'Nosferatu'...and other samples are here.
CinemaTech focuses on how new technologies are changing cinema - the way movies get made, discovered, marketed, distributed, shown, and seen. (With occasional forays into other parts of the entertainment economy.) You can also follow CinemaTech on Twitter (@ctechblog).
For about the last ten years, I've been writing about innovation for publications like the Boston Globe, the New York Times, Wired, Variety, Fast Company, the Hollywood Reporter, Salon.com, BusinessWeek, and Newsweek.
I helped start (and continue to help run) three conferences: Future Forward, the Nantucket Conference on Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and Convergence: The Life Sciences Leaders Forum. I also often speak and moderate at other people's conferences, and serve as a commentator on TV and radio. (Which beats actual work.)
