episode 19: a trip to Egypt?, Keaton and Lloyd in South Korea, prepping for a 1915 Swedish silent

Welcome. I get lost en route to a gig whilst dealing with a snafu in overseas travel. Next, I talk about explaining the onscreen music credit (attributed to someone who is not me) to 3,000 people in Jecheon, South Korea.
Performance recording: accompanying "Steamboat Bill, Jr." starring Buster Keaton at the 12th Jecheon International Music and Film Festival.
I talk about preparing for and playing during two outdoor shows at JIMFF for huge crowds, outdoors by a lake, as well as my recent experience with the universality of silent film.
Performance recording: accompanying "The Freshman" starring Harold Lloyd at the 12th Jecheon International Music and Film Festival.
Preparing to accompany "Madame de Thebes", a 1915 Swedish silent film, at the 11th "Silent Film Days" festival in Tromsø, Norway; the challenges of a contemporary audience decoding the cinematic storytelling language of a 1915 drama, and in particular one with footage missing, and how creating a new score can help the film go over better.
DVD/BluRay recording: a few minutes of my score for Fritz Lang's "The Spiders", recorded using multi-tracked orchestral samples on the Kurzweil PC2 digital keyboard for a restoration just released on BluRay by Kino Lorber.
I share a brief rundown of my September shows, and some news about coming to L.A., and wrap up with a note about the "ripple effect" and filling empty seats. Thanks for listening!
