Dave Harrington, of electronic duo group Darkside, brings together The Dave Harrington Group to embark on a sonic odyssey with the great classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Bringing free jazz, drone, ambient, and film music to bear on this iconic classic of the silent era, the DHG will re-construct a sonic world for a singular experience of the film that lives and breathes.

Dave Harrington – guitar, bass, electronics

Andrew Fox – keyboards, electronics, vocals

Samer Ghadry – drums, percussion

Plot: With its bizarre angles and aura of insanity, this is the ultimate German Expressionist movie — a psychological thriller with stylized sets, distorting mirrors and a cruel chiaroscuro. Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss), a pretentious fairground huckster, arrives in a new town along with the mysterious Cesare (Conrad Veidt), a somnabulist who, in his trancelike state, carries out unspeakable crimes at the diabolical doctor’s command.

Andrew Botsford is a visiting professor and communications consultant working with the Stony Brook Southampton Killer Films MFA in Film program and program director Magdalene Brandeis. A writer, editor, actor and director, for 20 years he was the associate editor of The Southampton Press family of newspapers and the editor of the papers’ Arts & Living sections.

Patron Hosts members graciously offer to donate lodging in their homes for vetted artists of all kinds during recognized festivals and major cultural events. www.patronhosts.com
