Opening with a solo set, this show features a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s classic film, The Kid, with a live score provided by Marc Ribot. Commissioned and premiered in Jan 2010 by the NY Guitar Festival at Merkin Hall, Ribot’s delicate and at times haunting solo guitar score to The Kid contemporizes this film, which remains a relevant story about our current economic and social conditions.
Marc Ribot, one of the great eclectic, electric guitarists, has released over 20 albums under his own name over a 35-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler with his group Spiritual Unity (Pi Recordings), to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez producing two critically acclaimed releases with Atlantic Records under Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos, and his latest Silent Movies released in 2010 on Pi Recordings was described as a “down-in- mouth-near masterpiece” by the Village Voice.
