3rd annual Halloween special film screening & live score: 1962 “Carnival of Souls” with music by Light Upon Blight Ensemble Sat., Oct. 28

Avant-garde rock group Light Upon Blight Ensemble returns for their third annual Halloween special on Saturday, Oct. 28, this time improvising a live score to Herk Harvey’s 1962 horror classic “Carnival of Souls.” The show starts at 8 PM and there is a $5 cover. Costumes and other Halloween trick or treatery are encouraged and welcomed.

From the Criterion Collection Web site on a page that features video of director Herk Harvey discussing the film:

Fifty-four years ago, director Herk Harvey made his atmospheric horror film Carnival of Souls, and in the time since, it has become not only a beloved cult classic but a landmark of American independent cinema. Made independently from the Centron Corporation, a company in Lawrence, Kansas, where Harvey had made several industrial and educational films, this low-budget feature was shot primarily at an abandoned amusement park on the shore of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Initially released in drive-in theaters in 1962, Carnival opened to a limited audience as part of a double feature, but it left an indelible mark on those who did see it, like director George A. Romero. It wasn’t until 1989 that the film finally had a proper revival and was given a theatrical release in New York, establishing it as one of the most influential horror films of its time.

Much like volcanic eruptions, Light Upon Blight performances are uncompromising acts of spontaneous destruction and creation. Purging and destroying the old while simultaneously laying new, fertile ground. No two Light Upon Blight performances are ever the same, just as nature intended. Sounds like: Free Jazz with a noise aesthetic or an exorcism.

The Light Upon Blight Ensemble is the jazzier & groovier off-shoot of the Psych/Free Improv/Doom/Noise project Light Upon Blight. For this show, Light Upon Blight Ensemble features Jeff Cedrone (guitar, analog synth), Bob Gorry (guitar), Tom Hogan (drums), Pete Riccio (drums), Pete Brunelli (bass), and BVFCC’s own Richard Brown (alto sax).

Music/Film/Halloween: Film screening of silent “Nosferatu” with live score by Light Upon Blight Fri., Oct. 28, at 8 PM

nosferatu_1922_poster_webAvant-garde rock group Light Upon Blight returns for their second annual Halloween special, this time improvising a live score to F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film classic “Nosferatu.” The show starts at 8 PM and there is a $5 cover. Costumes and other Halloween tick or treatery are encouraged and welcomed.

“Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens ” (translates as “Nosferatu: A symphony of Horror”) is as masterpiece of German Expressionist filmmaking. An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”—Stoker’s estate sued and won; fortunately, not all copies were destroyed as ordered by the court—”Nosferatu” was a sensation upon its release.

Roger Ebert enshrined “Nosferatu” as one of the “Great Movies,” writing, “To watch F.W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu” (1922) is to seethe vampire movie before it had really seen itself. Here is the story of Dracula before it was buried alive in clichés, jokes, TV skits, cartoons and more than 30 other films. The film is in awe of its material. It seems to really believe in vampires.”

Much like volcanic eruptions, Light Upon Blight performances are uncompromising acts of spontaneous destruction and creation. Purging and destroying the old while simultaneously laying new, fertile ground. No two Light Upon Blight performances are ever the same, just as nature intended. Sounds like: Free Jazz with a noise aesthetic or an exorcism.

Music: Light Upon Blight, Human Flourishing to offer experimental music Thurs., Mar. 10

Experimental music groups Human Flourishing and Light Upon Blight play Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, Mar. 10. The music starts at 8 PM and there is a $5 cover.

Human Flourishing

Human Flourishing

Human Flourishing—featuring Connor Pereault and Gregory Paul—explores the spiritual connectivity between people through the creation of tense sound environments in a variety of spaces. Whether located in an abandoned farm structure or a New York gallery, the audience is encapsulated by the experience happening before them; transforming the surroundings into an ethereal or satanical plane. Human Flourishing’s experimental sound horizons encourage inner reflection and spiritual connectivity to a world that seems isolated and cold.

The resulting music is a celebration of fellow feeling. It’s about embracing uncertainty, loving a friend’s weirdness, exploring mistakes, and exorcising demons. The music has been called goopcore, and electronic primitivism, and worse. Their improvisations flow from harsh electronic noise to gentle acoustic strummings and back, held aloft by otherworldly ambient textures and/or simple vocal harmonies.

Halloween special Music & Film Screening: Light Upon Blight plays a live score to silent classic “Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages”

Light_Upon_Blight_cafe_nine_WebAs a special pre-Halloween event, the improvisational group Light Upon Blight will improvise a film score to the silent movie classic “Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages” on Friday, Oct. 30. The performance begins at 8 PM and there is a $5 cover. Narration will feature the pre-recorded voice of legendary Beat Generation author William S. Burroughs.

The band urges the public to “come on out to this one time event and help us summon up some ghouls, ghosts, and goblins on the eve before Halloween.” Costumes are absolutely encouraged.

Much like volcanic eruptions, Light Upon Blight performances are uncompromising acts of spontaneous destruction and creation. Purging and destroying the old while simultaneously laying new, fertile ground. No two Light Upon Blight performances are ever the same, just as nature intended. Sounds like: Free Jazz with a noise aesthetic or an exorcism.

For this show, Light Upon Blight will feature Jeff Cedrone (guitar, synth, electronics), Pete Brunelli (bass, electronics), John C. Miller (modular synth), Tom Hogan (drums) and Tony Pellino (synth, guitar).

A 1921 review in Variety said:

Swedish and Danish pictures easily hold the palm for morbid realism and in many cases for brilliant acting and production. Witchcraft made by [Danish director] Benjamin Christensen [funded by a Swedish production company], leaves all the others beaten. It is in reality a pictorial history of black magic, of witches, of the Inquisition, and the thousand and one inhumanities of the superstition-ridden Middle Ages. Many of its scenes are unadulterated horror.

Still from “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”

On June 18 they will harness those powers to add musical color to the 1920 German Expressionist film masterpiece “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.”

Roger Ebert wrote:

A case can be made that “Caligari” was the first true horror film. There had been earlier ghost stories and the eerie serial “Fantomas” made in 1913-14, but their characters were inhabiting a recognizable world. “Caligari” creates a mindscape, a subjective psychological fantasy. In this world, unspeakable horror becomes possible.

“Caligari” is said to be the first example in cinema of German Expressionism, a visual style in which not only the characters but the world itself is out of joint. I don’t know of another film that used its extreme distortions and discordant angles, but its over-all attitude certainly cleared the way for “The Golem,” “Nosferatu,” “Metropolis” and “M.” In one of the best-known books ever written about film, From Caligari to Hitler, the art historian Siegfried Kracauer argued that the rise of Nazism was foretold by the preceding years of German films, which reflected a world at wrong angles and lost values. In this reading, Caligari was Hitler and the German people were sleepwalkers under his spell.
