Only a handful of screening events make me jealous of New York City lives.  The Cinema 16 project is one of them.  Curator Molly Surno pairs local bands with obscure silent films. Musicians have one month to compose an original score.  Above, Nathan Mckee accompanies two animated works.  The video and sound are both terrible, and the camera apparently died halfway through the performance.  But.  I imagine it was wonderful to be there.  Lazaro Valiente accompanies the “furies” montage from Crime Without Passion by (Slavko Vorkapich, 1934) here.
