Take a Time Machine to Music of the Silent Cinema

Week of June 11th

The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra

Listening to the new album from The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra is like stepping into a time machine; taking us back the Music of the Silent Cinema. The five-piece ensemble from Boulder, Colorado revives music composed and arranged for silent movie orchestras. They recently performed at the SF Silent Film Festival, prompting a rave from the Chronicle’s Leah Garchik, “The music was terrific, like hot fudge on a sundae!”
