Metropolis Film Score

[for improvising electronic music ensemble]

composed 2010 for Faculty Lounge: 60 minutes



My long-time rock band Faculty Lounge (with special guest Paul Smith of the Badlees) "composed" and performed a full score to this classic silent film by Fritz Lang. We follow a loosely notated score and play various electronic instruments for the first 90 minutes or so, and then move over to the rock set-up for the apocalyptic final 30 minutes.  We performed this at Susquehanna University on February 18, 2011.
