The Knife: Silent Shout—An Audio Visual Experience
In 2006, the critically acclaimed Swedish band, the Knife, performed live for the first time. The show, which presents an immersive and synesthetic experience of visual music, instantly garnered the group a reputation for innovation. Featuring the work of visual effects artist Andreas Nilsson, the Knife performs in masks and sometimes silhouetted behind screens, while making use of sculptural laser lights and animation to bolster the group’s foreboding, apocalyptic musical aesthetic. Silent Shout is a video performance intended to capture the intensity of their shows. Preceded by music videos and a short film, When I Found the Knife. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Mezzanine, 444 Jessie Street (at Mint). Tickets $8 at the door. For $5 tickets email email@example.com. Presented by San Francisco Film Society, Mezzanine and Rehab. Sponsored by SFWeekly and 7x7 magazine. Must be 21+ to attend.
