Red Room Orchestra: Music from Horror Movies
About Music from Horror Movies
They're baaack (say it Poltergeist style)! Celebrate Halloween with a psycho selection of score cues and soundtrack songs from the films of Dario Argento, John Carpenter, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, and George A. Romero. Plus, creepy favorites from The Exorcist, Phantasm, Rosemary’s Baby, and more. Dress up as your favorite on-screen psychopath, freak out your friends, and order a good bloody cocktail for this night of pure, terrifying, Halloween fun.
Formed by San Francisco producer and multi-instrumentalist Marc Capelle in 2017, the Red Room Orchestra is a collective of popular, jazz, classical, and electronic composers and performers who’ve played and recorded alongside the Bad Seeds, the Plastic Ono Band, Cibo Matto, Oingo Boingo, Sonic Youth, CAKE, American Music Club, Lou Harrison, the Steve Reich Ensemble, the Nels Cline Singers, Rodriguez, Iggy Pop, Tune-Yards, Bill Frisell, and more. They’ve offered live renderings of the music of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks,” reinterpretations of the soundtracks of Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore” and “The Royal Tenenbaums,” musical accompaniment for a live read of “Planes, Trains & Automobiles,”and for SFFILM they composed and performed original scores for the short films from Stephen Parr’s Oddball Films archive.
The Red Room Orchestra projects are co-curated and produced by SF Sketchfest’s David Owen.
