FILMUSIK: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
For this screening of Ed Wood’s sci-fi classic, we’re combining twirling bows and batons with twisting knobs and faders. Local electronica artist Sugar Short Wave in collaboration with the Classical Revolution PDX String Quartet premiere a LIVE soundtrack in the pit under the flickering lights of UFOs and vampires.
Ed Wood’s timeless work of great vision and ineptitude is back to the big-screen with our restored and colorized print of the film (courtesy of Legend Films), bringing the pajama aliens, hubcap flying saucers and stock footage to a new level of uhh… realism.
With 19 Musicians, Composers and Voice Actors in the pit, we are taking a stab at the best/worst movie ever made (and we’re going for a stake through the heart).
Live performances add polish to Ed Wood’s ‘Plan 9′
