Description

Screenings of ‘silent’ films were, in fact, rarely silent – they were almost always accompanied by music. CINEPIANO is a tribute to this magical, lost experience.

An impressive feat of improvisation and synchronism, live scoring is a very unique audiovisual experience. Music precisely syncs with scenes and, in the absence of dialogue and sound, helps to tell the story – establishing pace, emotion and drama.

Scoring classic silent movies, Brazilian composer and pianist Tony Berchmans improvises by blending excerpts of classical and folk music with his own original music inspired by vintage styles such as ragtime, traditional jazz or stride piano. Created in 2010, the CINEPIANO project has toured around Brazil and selected events in Europe.

For his latest London appearance Tony will score the 1920 film version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,directed by John S. Robertson and starring John Barrymore. The film uses elements from a 1887 stage version of Stevenson’s original novella
by Thomas Russell Sullivan. A huge box office success on its release, it is famous for Barrymore’s transformation scenes, a mixture of facial and bodily contortions as well as makeup.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
