Performing Arts at UCM


The Performing Arts Series and The Department of Music hosted a unique concert and film experience

with The Alloy Orchestra at Hendricks Hall, Monday,

October 10, 2016.

ALLOY ORCHESTRA is a three man musical ensemble, writing and performing live accompaniment to

classic silent films.

Working with an outrageous assemblage of peculiar objects,

they thrash and grind soulful music from unlikely sources.

Utilizing their famous “rack of junk” and electronic synthesizers, the group generates beautiful music in a spectacular variety of styles.


Hendricks Hall was transformed into an old movie house as Alloy played live to 5 famous short films from 1906 to 1965,

including “The Red Spectre,” “Artheme Swallows His Clarinet,” “The Pet” by Windsor McCay,

“Clay or the Origin of the Species” by Ernest Noyes and “The Playhouse” by Buster Keaton.


The group also met with UCM music and film students for a special Q&A session.
