Synopsis

Enjoy an evening of rare delight - a throwback to the golden age of the 1920's, with live music played to a classic silent movie. Wurlitza, a five piece Cornish band, will be presenting a live soundtrack to F.W. Murnau’s film classic movie, SunriseA Song of Two Humans.


Lauded as one of the greatest films of all time Sunrise is often considered to be the finest silent film ever made. Tempted to Hollywood by William Fox’s offer of unlimited resources and complete artistic freedom, F.W. Murnau’s film is a fine blend of Expressionist bleakness and Hollywood optimism; a rollercoaster of emotional tension that is gripping throughout. Underlying this is a beautiful love story that could be ‘any place, any where.’ Murnau was able to draw upon the most extraordinary cinematographic effects of his time.


With a live soundtrack ranging from Bach, Chopin and Villa Lobas to Echo and the Bunnymen and Talking Heads, Wurlitza successfully connect the 1920s with the present day in an evening that will appeal to all ages. The musical line up includes five part vocal harmonies, classical and steel guitars, keyboards, clarinet, whistle, bass and djembe drums.

“Blending contemporary musical themes in a unique and seamless performance this entertaining hybrid offers a fresh approach to this genre. A musical and visual treat that is not to be missed." - Paul K Joyce (Composer/Producer)
