We’ve all had that moment on the platform when we just couldn’t take it anymore. The G train wasn’t just late — it was non-existent. As in, its existence was doubted by anyone who took the train after 10:00 a.m. and before 3:00 p.m. You were so late to your class/art modeling gig/poor excuse for a job, you started having thoughts about jumping on the train tracks with the rats just to alleviate the pain of your broke life.
To add insult to injury, once you got on the G, the man next to you was jamming so hard on his headphones that his flailing appendages were certainly very definitely in your personal space. Continue reading →

Six months ago, Geoff Gersh sat down to watch the silent black and white film Blancanieves. Before it even finished, he knew he wanted to rescore it for the Live Sound Cinema (LSC) series at Nitehawk Cinemas. “I like dark art movies and images,” Gersh said. “I just find it inspiring and this has a lot of that.”
The 2012 film, written and directed by Pablo Berger, “combines elements of Snow White (Charles Perrault, not Disney), Carmen, bullfighting, Bette Davis at her most frightening, and the grotesque,” Berger once explained to Interview magazine. Gersh describes the film, and his score, as “ambient and melancholy.”
After watching the show with Gersh’s score, I realized that live musical accompaniment immerses an audience in a film’s narrative in a way that nothing else can.
