FOOVIE (food and a movie) for ArtPower at UC San Diego featuring the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra
Have dinner at 7pm, and watch Sally of the Sawdust (silent, 1925), with Scott and the TTPO at 8pm.
In Sally of the Sawdust, a lovely orphaned circus girl discovers she is actually a wealthy heiress. We'll celebrate with vintage carnival treats and high-class 1920's soiree food!
W.C. Fields plays a loveable juggling carnival crook and Carol Dempster (La Jolla's very own silent superstar!) is his born-in-a-circus-trunk ward. This film is underscored with live music from the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra. Under Scott's direction, the audience will assist with musical gestures and sound effects using everything from an actual slapstick (you can't have a slapstick film story without one) to many other tools-of-the trade: Birdcalls! Bulb horns! Ukuleles! Musical saw! Orchestral harp!

BLACK FRANCE FILM FESTIVAL
At the Black France Film Festival in Paris, Scott premiered his new live score for Josephine Baker's Siren of the Tropics with African drummer Gene Perry and pianist Andrew Infanti. Professor Bennetta Jules-Rosette, a Josephine Baker scholar, introduced the film.
THE MAN WHO
Inspired by, but in no way a conventional stage adaptation of, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks' best-selling collection of case histories about the neurologically impaired. For New Village Arts Theatre's production, Scott's soundscape complemented a superb ensemble of four actors through this adventurous journey of the mind.
