Under the name NOISY SILENT FILM CLUB I’ve been teaming up with Arkadiusz Potyka to bring electronic sound to silent cinema. Ark plays bass and other noise machines; I play found sounds and my unique instrument from the dawn of electronic music – the theremin. Live, from minimal elements (and no laptops) we conjure up a richly atmospheric soundworld, helping audiences find new life and meaning in some of the world’s finest old films.
Before that we scored the revolutionary classic Battleship Potemkin at the Arthouse Cinema on Sunday 31st March. The screening was number 3 in Time Out London’s top ten pop-ups and festivals that week.
You can listen to a selection of our soundtracks at the NOISY SILENT FILM CLUB Soundcloud page.
