With Groupmuse Nights Out, we aim to show our crowd the many marvelous shapes that classical music performance takes in the modern world when it can't fit in a living room. And this Friday, oh boy have we got a good one for ya!

Our friends at Access Contemporary Music are making a limited stack of tickets available to us for their Sound of Silent Film Festival, happening at Williamsburg's absolute gem of a performance space, National Sawdust.

8 new modern silent films screened with 8 new live scores, performed ~live~.

At the door, these tickets are $34, but for us, they're $20. Because it's Groupmuse, baby.

It starts at 10pm, so it'll be a unforgettable and late Night Out in the city that never sleeps.

Have fun!


Access Contemporary Music's Sound of Silent Film Festival, long a popular event in Chicago, comes to New York with eight newly commissioned scores performed live to modern silent films.

Martin Scorsese’s The Big Shave is a terrifying study in the damage that senseless adherence to ideology can cause. Brian O'Hern's breezy score makes for an uncomfortably effective juxtaposition.

Guy Maddin’s The Heart of the World is a six minute tour-de-force inspired by Soviet propaganda films of the 1930’s. Seth Boustead's score underscores the relentless action of the film with hard driving rhythmic intensity.

Jos Stelling's The Waiting Room is a hilarious tale of a busybody in a European train station who gets his comeuppance, set to John Elmquist's jazz-inflected score.

G.M. is a visually stunning homage to French film pioneer Georges Melieres by British director Martin Pickles. Randall West's aleatoric score is a haunting accompaniment.

Dan Channel's Liminal explores one moment in a life in gorgeous slow motion with lyrical music composed by Trevor Patrick Watkin.

Life is Nick Bolton's depiction of one man's epic quest to have his toast exactly the way he wants it. Tim Corpus' music adds just the right notes to this offbeat comedy.

Jasper Lee's Deja Vu Deluge is a fever dream of the new world by the Spanish queen Isabela perfectly underscored by Donny Walker's percussion heavy score.

Each film will be screened in silence with the scores performed live!
