METROPOLIS: live score
In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working-class prophet who predicts the coming of a saviour to mediate their differences.
This masterpiece of early German expressionist film will be screened with a new score played live by Jessica Lindsay Smith, Robbie Melville, and Maddison Carter in LongPlay's intimate cinema space.
Jessica Lindsay Smith is a composer, performer, and sound artist who creates music that defies the boundaries of genre. Alongside guitarist Robbie Melville, and drummer/percussionist Maddison Carter, they bring to life a through-composed and improvised score. Electronic manipulation of sound and improvisation bring a new perspective to the increasingly relevant triumph of silent cinema Metropolis.
