Music in May – Sounds of Silent
Saturday, 29 May at 3pm
Witness silent films coming to life with Sounds of Silent. This Melbourne-based five-piece ensemble recreates the silent movie experience from the ’20s & ’30s with improvised performances featuring fun, familiar and popular music in the style of the period.
At this event, Sounds of Silent will perform accompanying music from Wrong Again—a hilariously original two-reel short film starring Laurel and Hardy—followed by Steamboat Bill Jr.—a feature length comedy starring Buster Keaton, described as “one of Keaton’s best.”
The Sounds of Silent formed in 2013 and have brought to life silent movie comedy classics to audiences around the country. They perform regularly at Melbourne cinemas, and have played at numerous festivals and events including: Taste of Tasmania, Adelaide Fringe, Apollo Bay Music Festival, Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival, Low Light Queenscliff and many more.
