REFLEKTOR2 – perform their semi improvised score to the stunningly evocative film of the new 1920’s Berlin.
Their composing and improvising skills, together with a sense of detail to sound and interaction in performance, bring real empathy to silent films.
Walter Ruttmann’s definitive ‘city film’, Berlin : Symphony of a Great City (1927), is a dawn to dusk portrait of 1920s Berlin, combining documentary, abstract and lyrical imagery. With Karl Freund’s masterly camerawork and the film’s assured editing, BERLIN was hugely successful on its release, and that rarity – a film both popular and avant-garde.
