Vista Nights on Third Thursday
Oct. 16, 2014
5:00 – 8:00 pm; performance starts 5:30 pm.

if ART Gallery presents an evening of ear–eye coordination during VISTA NIGHTS on Third Thursday, October 16, 2014, 5:30 – 8:00 p.m., as Columbia's widely traveled SILVER SCREEN ORCHESTRA sets the tone and ambiance with live music against a backdrop of equally-live video projections. Enter the darkness and come out on the bright side, where exhibitions by Jeff Donovan and Michael Brodeur will be on view during the performance.
            Fresh off a recording session in Montreal, Canada, for the band’s first EP, Silver Screen Orchestra will create instrumental music featuring electric guitar and violin against a video backdrop. The EP, For Nick, recorded with Howard Bilerman of Hotel2Tango, will be available for purchase. Silver Screen Orchestra uses public domain and personal stock footage as an inspiration for its music. Band members Nathan Stewart and Kayla Breitwieser, both of South Carolina post-rock band Pan, have been playing together since 2011. Their common interest in instrumental music, along with similar composing styles, resulted in early recordings. Incorporating a visual component became a staple of each composition and in some cases helped develop a song’s movement and purpose.
