Image: 1593134 The Alloy Orchestra double Live LP was recorded Direct-To-Acetate October, 12th in the Third Man Blue Room as the soundtrack to The Man With The Movie Camera Screening, cohosted by the Belcourt Theatre as part of the 2013 iNDie Festival.

It was only a lucky few iNDie Festival attendees who witnessed Alloy Orchestra's performance of their soundtrack to the 1929 silent film ''The Man with the Movie Camera'' in our Blue Room last Fall, so we are pleased to bring the recording to you in the form of a double LP. Alloy Orchestra is a 3-man musical ensemble - Roger C. Miller, Ken Winokur, & Terry Donahue - who use ''racks of junk,'' synthesizers, and all sorts of other unusual instruments, found objects, and unlikely noisemakers to aurally accompany silent films. Roger Ebert has called them ''the best in the world at accompanying silent films,'' and we can't disagree. ''The Man with the Movie Camera,'' directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova, is a documentary with no specific cast or narrative. In the film, a man carries out his day in the city as a member of the proud proletariat, capturing invention and the relationship between man and machine in Lenin's Soviet Union.

Here's a taste of their original soundtrack: http://youtu.be/7ZkvjWIEcoU Available from 24.10.2014
