Sergei Eisenstein’s groundbreaking movie ¡Que viva México! with a new commissioned film score by Atlanta composer Brian Mitchell

Bent Frequency presents ¡Que viva México!

On January 31, 2009 at 8:00 p.m. at Kopleff Recital Hall at Georgia State University, contemporary music ensemble Bent Frequency will present a unique multimedia experience: Sergei Eisenstein’s groundbreaking movie ¡Que viva México! with a new commissioned film score by Atlanta composer Brian Mitchell. Written for a small ensemble of flute, violin, guitar and percussion, Mr. Mitchell’s score is the perfect compliment for this hauntingly beautiful film and will be performed “in real time” during the movie by members of the ensemble. Of the score, Linda Dubler, Curator of Media Arts at the High Museum states:

"Finally, ¡Que viva México!'s exquisite black and white imagery has a fitting accompaniment in composer Brian Mitchell's subtle, understated score. Its inventive orchestration and many moods, ranging from the lyrical to the melancholic to the joyous, bring a dynamic, contemporary sensibility to this unfinished masterpiece."


The viewing will be preceded by a brief lecture from Dr. Gregory Smith, Associate Professor of Communications at Georgia State University.
