J' Accuse


"Uploaded by on Jul 31, 2009"
"On June 23rd and 24th 2009 at the Staadschouwburg in Amsterdam, Gary Lucas premiered his new live score for the Nederlands Filmmuseum's recently restored print of French director Abel Gance's epic 1919 silent anti-war masterpiece "J'Accuse". Commissioned by the Holland Festival, the new live score, a collaboration with the young Dutch composer Reza Namavar featuring Lucas' kaleidoscopic live guitar work and the 9 piece Ensemble Kameleon under the direction of Wilmar Devisser, received standing ovations both nights, and both performances were sold-out. Here is the original demo for the opening title music for "J' Accuse", composed by Gary Lucas and featuring Lucas and the virtuosic violinist Emi Ohi Resnick of Ensemble Kameleon, recorded in NYC in May 2009 by Jason Candler."
