“One of the world’s finest, if not the leading silent film live improvisational accompanist” (TimesQuotidian.com), Boston-area sonic artist Peter Edwin Krasinski deploys his powers of musical imagination and deft dramatic timing at the Albert Schweitzer Memorial Organ to bring Harold Lloyd’s 1928 silent comedy SPEEDY to life on the big screen.
Lloyd stars as a hapless ne’er-do-well whose frenetic escapades as a driver find him toting baseball legend Babe Ruth (making a rare film appearance) in a taxi cab, and leading a hair-raising high-speed chase through New York City traffic to save a horse-drawn trolley from the clutches of an evil syndicate – “a great peek into New York’s past” (A.V. Club).
Krasinski “produced a consistently thrilling score” (Portland Press-Herald)
Silent film and organ improvisation.
