Gary Lucas plays Esta Noite Encarnerei no Teu Cadaver by Jose Mojica Marins |
Vanguard New York City-based guitarist and composer Gary Lucas has created a series of outstanding scores that he performs live with films. For our Via Brazil series programmed in conjunction with our featured exhibition Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art in Brazil, Lucas will perform his original music for the 1967 cult horror class from Brazil Esta Noite Encarnarei no Teu Cadaver (This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse) by the director/screenwriter/actor Jose Mojica Marins who is popularly known as Coffin Joe. Lucas' new live solo guitar score for the film creates a haunting, symphonic score closely synched to the shocking images of Marins' film, a dark morality tale pitting Marins as Coffin Joe railing against the forces of a pitiless God-less universe. The score weaves in and out of the film and compliments closely to the original soundtrack - which consists mainly of dialogue in Portuguese (subtitled in English), sound effects, and occasional canned film music to enhance the overall experience of this amazing film for the viewer.
