Veil by Dovetail Orchestra
Sound and Spectacle
Saturday, October 27, 6:30 PM
Dovetail Orchestra, based out of Santa Fe, is the brainchild of local composer/multi-instrumentalist Ross Hamlin. Debuting at SITE Santa Fe in February 2018, Underscore was a sold-out hit. With Halloween approaching, Veil features another round of eclectic and seasonally-appropriate silent short films and animations from 1905-1931. On October 26 and 27 at 6:30 pm, Hamlin will be joined by notable multi-instrumentalists Casey Andersen and Lee Steck. Featuring a dizzying array of styles and approaches, Dovetail Orchestra will perform a live score to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1912), A Panicky Picnic (1910), La Maison Ensorcelée (1908), The Merry Frolics of Satan (1906), Bimbo’s Initiation (1931) and many others.
The Santa Fe Reporter:
“Here we have something completely different than the usual fare, created by a local musician and existing in an art space that is generally known for challenging offerings. …., just that it seems like it’ll be wild fun; Hamlin is, of course, a celebrated weirdo.” – Alex DeVore
