Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alloy Orchestra is a musical ensemble based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that performs its own accompaniments to silent films of the classic movie era. Founded in 1990 by percussionists Terry Donahue and Ken Winokur, the group was later joined by keyboardist Roger Miller, better known as the guitarist of post-punk band Mission of Burma. Since its first performance on December 31, 1990, in Boston, the Alloy Orchestra has developed an extensive repertoire of music and sounds that it performs during the projection of silent films. Its three musicians use an array of found objects and electronics as well as traditional percussion, wind and keyboard instruments. In 1999 Entertainment Weekly put the ensemble on its "It List" of the 100 most creative people or groupings in the entertainment world.show more
