Jason Roberts Accompanies The Silent Film

JASON ROBERTS ACCOMPANIES
THREE SHORT COMEDIES OF BUSTER KEATON
Friday, November 3, 2017 at 7:30 pm

Jason Roberts Accompanies The GeneralJason Roberts, St. Bartholomew’s Associate Director of Music and Organist, provided live, improvised accompaniment on St. Bart's famous Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ to three short comedies of Buster Keaton.

Convict 13 (1920) featured Keaton as an innocent (and untalented) golfer who is mistaken for a convict. In The Boat (1921), Buster and his family sailed into the Pacific Ocean in a homemade vessel that is barely seaworthy. And in Day Dreams (1922), Buster tried to win the hand of his girl by “making it big” in the city.

The audience experienced these films as their first audiences would have: with live accompaniment, and heard St. Bart’s enormous pipe organ in a surprising context!
