Performed only once before, Evolution Control Committee's radically eclectic soundscape for FW Murnau's horror classic Nosferatu is a meticulous mix of soundtracks from other movies (how "Other Cinema" can you get?)! Iconic/ironic snippets from the classic tracks of The Sound of Music, Jaws, Dr. No, Star Wars, and dozens of others are DJ'd live from turntable, transmuted through Trademark G's magical sleight-of-hand into an uncannily appropriate unified soundtrack! PLUS: Copyright Criminals, a new doc by Kembrew McLeod and Ben Franzen, examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the ongoing debates about artistic expression and copyright law. Showcased are many of Hip Hop's legendary figures, like Public Enemy, De La Soul, George Clinton, Digital Underground, DJ Spooky, Eclectic Method, and Mark Hosler (of Negativland). PLUS an assemblage of Negativland's own audio-visual citations. NOTE: Early doors at 7:45, CC at 8, ECC at 9. *$7.
