Haxan with Live Score
Hawthorne visionary Jimi Cabeza de Vacareal name, real marker of destinymust hear Sun Ra and see Harry Smith when he puts on any quality silent film; his arcestras original live score to Murnaus Faust at the Art Theatre inflamed the originals simmering mysticism and invoked (in the most solemn sense) the revelatory psychedelia of Beausoleil and Lucifer Rising. With members of outré LA bands and crack CalArts musicians, he had both the personnel and the force of personality necessary to push a film experience toward pure white light. The harrowing Scandinavian silent mock-doc Haxan was de Vacas first-ever choice for a silent to soundtrack; after a year and then some working with other films, the young master gets his chance.
