Bentley College's Bowles Performing Arts Series Presents the Alloy Orchestra and the Fritz Lang Film, "Metropolis"

April 8, 1998


Waltham, Mass.- Bentley College's Bowles Performing Arts Series presents the Alloy Orchestra's live accompaniment to the classic 1928 Fritz Lang film, "Metropolis," on Wednesday, April 15, in Lindsay Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.

The Cambridge, Mass.-based ensemble specializes in the scoring and live accompaniment of silent films. The three-man group blends the sounds of a synthesizer, a sampler and drums with unconventional percussion instruments such as radiator pipes, truck springs, vacuum cleaner canisters, and duct work from an air-conditioning system to create an original sound that adds a lively new dimension to the film, which is a cult classic.

"We have much more of a modern edge," band member Ken Winokur once told Pulse! Magazine. "We are as likely to sound like a rock band as we are a conventional orchestra."

Tickets are $7 for the public; $5 for faculty and staff; and $3 for students. Reservations can be made by calling the Bowles Performing Arts Series ticket hotline at 781.891.3400.
