This link (https://vimeo.com/215526994) is the original video of 1926 Faust and audio CU Denver ElectroAcoustic Ensemble as led by Donald Sosin & Todd Reid performed live for the 2017 Denver Silent Film Festival on 4/29/17.
What a great representation of faculty and student talent from the College of Arts & Media. Prof. Todd Reid and musical director Donald Sosin built a silent film accompaniment to Faust in just 2 days. Instead of weeks or months–our students can create a 2-hour soundtrack in just 2 days. Bravo too to Howie Movshovitz for curating this great festival.
All of the presentations were terrific examples of the intellectual work going on in the CU Denver College of Arts & Media. My own training being in music, Elena Jones’s presentation caught my attention and stirred my imagination. “Supermodel (You Better GesamtkunstWERK!): RuPaul’s Drag Race Seen Through Richard Wagner’s ‘Total Work of Art.'”
