A feast for the eye and the ear, Sound + Vision Festival is a three-day showcase celebrating the enduring and mutually enriching relationship between cinema and music. This April we’re pleased to bring you live musical accompaniments to a pair of silent German classics: the Alloy Orchestra will perform an original score for E.A. Dupont’s newly restored seedy circus picture Varieté; and acclaimed musicians Matthew Nolan, Rachel Grimes, and Erik Friedlander will provide their own soundtrack to 1930’s People on Sunday. Capping off the festival is a double bill of the Barbet Schroeder and Pink Floyd collaborations More and The Valley (Obscured by Clouds)—psychedelic classics you won’t want to miss!
