Bask in the charisma and madness of Buster Keaton, with an arresting new live score.

Not So Silent Cinema

Stumbling through shooting galleries, trains, secret societies and falling houses Buster Keaton delivers outrageous stunts and antics (all with the famous deadpan delivery that earned him the nickname “The Great Stone Face”) in three classic comedic shorts: The High Sign (1921), The Goat (1921) and One Week (1920). Enjoy these films along with the fresh new original scores from Brendan Cooney's Not So Silent Cinema, complementing the films with a classic 1920’s urban-Americana soundscape, combining many strands of American roots music. Ragtime and old-time meet the blues, bluegrass and hot jazz, played live by a talented trio of musicians:

Kyle Tuttle — Banjo bluegrass and jazz banjo virtuoso, Kyle Tuttle was a finalist in the 2011 Winfield KS banjo competition. He has studied with the likes of Bela Fleck and Tony Trishka and can be found about town in many configurations.

Andy Bergman — Clarinet Andy plays in the Guy Mendilow Band (voted best world music act by the Boston Phoenix) and the Macrotones. He is a graduate of both Berklee and the New England Conservatory.

Brendan Cooney — Brendan recently moved to Boston from Philadelphia where he played piano in the Rhinoceri Trio, and baritone horn in the legendary West Philadelphia Orchestra. He has composed scores for numerous silent films under his Not-So-Silent-Cinema project.
