Alex Simon has composed an original score for “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”
Simon debuted the score with a live performance to a sold out house at St. Mazie. More screenings to come.
“Alex Simon’s ensemble had everyone tapping their feet and feeling good.. it was like being in Paris in the 1930’s. They didn’t use drums, synthesizers, pianos, or saxophones.. like Fred Astaire unloosening his tie and having a stiff drink.”
