02 Oct Live Film Score ::: STRIKE ::: Mohammad Sahraei
This coming Saturday, Oct 7th, we’re collaborating with the Dalhousie Art Gallery to present a screening of Sergei Eisenstein’s 1925 silent film STRIKE, which explores the strife and struggle of a worker’s revolt in the former Soviet Union.
We’ve invited local composer, musician and ethnomusicologist Mohammad Sahraei to create a score specially for this one-night only happening. Mohammad has put together an amazing piece that will be brought to life by a five-piece ensemble featuring Sahraei himself on tar, Matt Gallant of drums, Behrooz Mihankhah on piano, Yousef Mousavi on Guitar and Lukas Pearse on double bass.
