    Alloy Orchestra

    Wild and Weird, Alloy Orchestra's newest compositions for short silent movies, collects some of the oddest examples of early filmmaking you're likely to see. Included are Wadislaw Starewicz's 1912 The Cameraman's Revenge, a soap opera of animated insects; Hans Richter's 1926 Dadaist masterpiece Filmstudie; Edwin S. Porter's 1906 Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend, which explores the hallucinations brought on to a man who has eaten too much rich food,...

    Wild and Weird, Alloy Orchestra's newest compositions for short silent movies, collects some of the oddest examples of early filmmaking you're likely to see. Included are Wadislaw Starewicz's 1912 The Cameraman's Revenge, a soap opera of animated insects; Hans Richter's 1926 Dadaist masterpiece Filmstudie; Edwin S. Porter's 1906 Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend, which explores the hallucinations brought on to a man who has eaten too much rich food, and J. Stuart Blackman’s 1909 Princess Nicotine; or, the Smoke Fairy, about an impish sprite living in a gentleman's pipe. Tremendously entertaining, fast paced, truly wild and weird, these films will dispel any preconceptions you might have about silent films. And, of course, Alloy's audacious scores make these mini masterpieces all the more fun.
