Silent Green Kulturquartier is situated in the historically listed former Wedding Crematorium, and will open its doors to the public in autumn 2015. The building’s interor spaces are currently being transformed into a site for independent and interdisciplinary art and cultural production, and will constitute a combination of offices, studios and events venues.
Lori Goldston, Aidan Baker and Andrea Belfi will collaborate on this evening to add a new soundtrack to the silentmovie “The Passion of Joan of Arc” by Carl Theodor Dreyer from 1928. Regarded as one of the landmarks of cinema in the first half of the 20th century, the film describes the last hours of Joan of Arc. Studying the film and the filmmaker, Goldston, Baker and Belfi use music to translate the movie’s original intent, helping people appreciate mood, pace and timing.
Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic, is full, textured, committed and original. She was the touring cellist for Nirvana from 1993–1994 and appears on their live album MTV Unplugged in New York. She is a member of Earth, the Black Cat Orchestra, and Spectratone International.
Aidan Baker is a Canadian musician and writer currently based in Berlin, Germany. Classically trained in flute, he is self-taught on guitar, drums, and various other instruments. As a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary classical.
Andrea Belfi is a drummer, electroacoustic musician and composer. His projects and collaborations extend to diverse musical fields, from rock to electroacoustic experimentation, from avant-folk to radical improvisation, from audio/visual performance to sound installation.
