Favoriting July 14, 2015: ROGER MILLER (Alloy Orchestra/Mission of Burma)
Morricone Island welcomes Roger Miller of Boston's silent film live score pioneers Alloy Orchestra who will perform their original score to George Fitzmaurice's "Son of the Sheik" (1926), starring Vilma Banky and Rudolph Valentino (the greatest lover of the silver screen in his last and greatest role), at Prospect Park's Celebrate Brooklyn on Friday, July 17. The trio is approaching its 25th year with over 30 feature length classic silent film original scores under their collective belts. When not moonlighting as the guitarist/vocalist of post-punk legends Mission of Burma (e.g., Saturday, July 18 at Fenway Park), Roger has held down Alloy Orchestra's keyboard chair since co-founder Caleb Sampson's untimely passing in 1998. Devon and Roger will discuss the upcoming screening and history of the band as well as take a listen to some of its recorded highlights.

wish I could make it out on Friday. As I was watching Metropolis, I was thinking how cool it would be to watch a silent film with live orchestra.

in other news, I saw a WFMU tweet that said Morricone is scoring the next Tarantino film...that sounds promising
