Documentary

Rod Lott
Don't tell anyone, but in my first year of high school, I owned a couple of Simply Red cassettes, purchased from Sound Warehouse. If you clicked on the link to read this review, it's likely you did, too.

C’mon, get slappy

Alloy Orchestra scores some pratfalls at OK Mozart.

As part of this week’s OK Mozart series in Oklahoma City, the Alloy Orchestra returns to perform a live soundtrack to silent films.

At 8 p.m. tonight at Oklahoma City University, the trio presents Masters of Slapstick, a 62-minute program of shorts starring some of the screen’s most legendary silent comedians: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle.

Alloy Orchestra is known for crafting unique, original soundtracks to films that had none, using an array of found percussion instruments and state-of-the-art electronics. The Massachusetts-based group was part of last year’s OK Mozart festivities with Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, for which I interviewed Alloy leader Ken Winokur. It’ll give you a good idea of what to expect with tonight’s performance (as will the clip below), despite the difference in films being shown.

Tickets are $10-$20. For more information, visit okmozart.com. —Rod Lott

Ian Vance Fuller spent six months of 2011 traveling through Europe, from Germany to France and Spain. The experience of hiking the mountains and the freedom of nature convinced him of one thing: He never wanted to work for anyone ever again.

Peter Gabriel: Secret World Live

Grab your things / I’ve come to take you home.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I'd say Peter Gabriel has aged wonderfully, judging from the concert film Secret World, but the performance is nearly two decades old, from 1993. Although far removed from his heyday as an MTV idol — the venue looks as if its audience were lifted from a BMW dealership super-sale — he still sounded great.
