Songwriters Showcase – Featuring The Shadow Ensemble

Our showcase of local composers and student-written music continues into 2017 with special guests, The Shadow Ensemble!

Established in 2015, *The Shadow Ensemble* seeks to recreate the textures, sounds and ambiance of early silent film scores using a  combination of acoustic instruments, vintage electronic hardware and a variety of sonic novelties. Dabbling in both convention and experimentation, *The Shadow Ensemble’s* scores are a blend of “old” and “new,” creating a compelling, constantly evolving sound world. Specializing in early horror /  suspense / science fiction, *The Shadow Ensemble’s* performances find inspiration in the improvisational and experimental soundcraft of early silent film organists. Led by conductor and violinist Ryan Cockerham, the ensemble creates their original scores in real-time, resulting in unique, one-of-a-kind performances which serve as direct, organic responses to the films themselves.
