The sounds of Silents: FAUST
December 17, 2012
Faust captures the intensity of a medieval universe steeped in religious fanaticism and pagan alchemy. Black-hooded pallbearers lead a torch-lit procession through a plague-stricken village literally cloaked by the wings of Satan. Landscapes materialize and vanish in wisps of smoke, demonic creatures soar through the heavens and earthly beings are tormented by the spirits that permeate the homes and rooftops of this shadow world. Berklee College of Music students perform a new score.
