The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
3epkano presents The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
The Foley Show – Macdara Smith.
Sat 9 Oct | 7.00pm | Spiegeltent
This 1919 silent masterpiece, directed by Robert Wiene, tells the murderously macabre and grotesque tale of Dr. Caligari and Cesare, a homicidal somnambulist, and the havoc they wreak in the small German town of Holstenwall and the lives of hapless Jane and Francis in particular.
The screening will have a live musical accompaniment, composed and performed by 3epkano whose line-up includes Cameron Doyle (electric guitar), Matthew Nolan (electric guitar), Richard McCullough (keyboards/organ), Leoba Petrie (cello), Abigail Smith (viola), James Mackin (drums and percussion) and Laurence Mackin (bass guitar).
Nearly every film we see contains foley- the sound of actors? actions. Punches, footsteps, bones breaking, a lovers? caress- all examples of foley, all performed in sync in a studio. And all invented by an Irishman in Hollywood in the 1920s, when silent movies became talkies. Macdara Smith, a musician and foley artist, originally from Dublin, now living and working in Paris, after a short history of foley will give a live demonstration.
