Memorial for Richard Lainhart

Sunday, March 4, 2012. 3:00 pm

A program of music and remembrances honoring musician, composer and filmmaker Richard Lainhart (Feb 14, 1953–Dec 30, 2011). The program will be followed by a 30 minute screening/performance of Richard’s last film work ‘History of the Future’ with a live improvised soundtrack by the ‘Orchestra of the Future.’

History of the Future
The film, ‘History of the Future’ is sourced entirely from technical, medical, and instructional animations from the 30s through the 70s, all of it public-domain content from the Prelinger Archives. There are no cartoons as such, and nothing comedic, although neither is there anything graphic or otherwise objectionable – much of it is fairly mysterious, in fact. The film is entirely silent, and so all the soundtrack audio will come from the players.
