SALON SAIGON TO OPEN CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI
Vu Nhat Tan To Play Venues First Cine-Concert
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a film that takes it’s audience on a silent horror into a macabre, gothic and psychologically affected world. It’s widely accepted as the example of German Expressionist cinema, telling the story of an insane hypnotist who convinces a sleepwalker to commit multiple murders. Dark.
On February 17, Salon Saigon will screen the film in conjunction with the sound stylings of Vietnamese composer Vu Nhat Tan, known for making experimental music that combines orchestral and chamber piano’s, electronic and various multimedia elements.
For one night only, the internationally known and studied musician will soundtrack this legendary film noir, having had his music performed in places like Australia, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, Mongolia, Switzerland, the USA, and Vietnam before, including at the Roaring Hoofs Festival in Ulaanbaatar (2000), the Louisiana Festival of Contemporary Music in Baton Rouge (2002), the Totally Huge New Music Festival in Perth (2003), and the Asian Music Festival in Tokyo (2003).
For lovers of all things horror and especially of experimental music, don’t miss this one. More info here.
