The Seashell and the Clergyman is Germaine Dulac’s 1928 silent film, featuring a script from Antonin Artaud. Often cited as the first surrealist film, it is offered here with a live score from Tim Carless. Tim is performing this piece solo at the piano. TSATC is a relatively short film, running at 30 minutes. Preceding the main feature, Carless will present a live-score to Alice in Wonderland, directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow from 1903. This curio is just under 10 minutes in length. The music will be a solo guitar performance written by Tim specifically for the occasion.
Tim Carless has been a working musician for the last 30 years. Having enjoyed tenures in London, NYC and Los Angeles, he has written, performed and recorded with people as disparate as Wreckless Eric, Paul McCartney and Aufgehoben. Based in Carrboro for the last few years. He scored The Hanging for PBS in 2017. More information can be found at www.timcarless.com.
