James Harrar is a filmmaker that began his musical career creating soundtrack to his experimental films.
Since 1995 James has been collaborating with Marshall Allen, of The Sun Ra Arkestra, creating live music to Harrar’s silent films. Marshall Allen explores sound in much the same manner that Harrar attempts to explore the moving image.
Cinema Soloriens music is passionate, haunting, eerie, complex,
liberating…a curious soundworld recalling The Magic City and
Strange Strings, inhabited by slowly-evolving compositions and
deconstructed space chants to celebrate Ra’s legacy.
