San Francisco experimental techno artist, Its Own Infinite Flower, will perform a live electronic score to Robert Wiene's 1920 Silent Expressionist Horror Classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. While taking inspiration from the iconic synthesizer soundtracks of John Carpenter (The Fog, Halloween 1, 2, & 3) and the influential work of Tangerine Dream (Firestarter, The Keep), it will not be a “retro” score. The music will attempt to fuse the 20th century classical music that informed the classic horror soundtrack with a modern approach to synthesis and electronics, and to not aschew the cliches of the horror soundtrack entirely, but instead subvert them playfully, celebrating it's rich sonic legacy. Old will meet new for this one night only performance to accompany a true cinematic masterpiece that Roger Ebert called “the first true horror film.”
