Psychedelic Cinema Orchestra

Psychedelic Cinema OrchestraBetween 1967 and 1969, Ken Brown shot super 8 films to project with the Road Show light show at Boston’s premiere rock club The Boston Tea Party. The resulting films, cobbled together to make the current PSYCHEDELIC CINEMA, stand today as an amazing window on another time.

Psychedelic Cinema will be accompanied by Psychedelic Cinema Orchestra – a Boston group of silent film composers and independent musicians:

Ken Winokur (Alloy Orchestra)

Jonathan La Master (Cul de Sac)

Dana Colley (Morphine)

The group will meld their signature junk percussion, bass clarinet, baritone sax, electric violin, guitars, and recorded samples of music, speeches and audio artivacts from the 60’s, into an improvised maelstrom of psychedelic sound.
