Date: Saturday, February 16, 2013
Time: 8pm
Venue: 17 Frost Theatre of the Arts
Sohrab was invited to play with the improvisational music repertory ensemble, THE DISSIDENT ARTS ORCHESTRA, which focuses on silent film scores. Under the leadership of John Pietaro this orchestra played music to the classic revolutionary silent film by Eisenstein, “BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN.” Here are two videos from the performance. The first one is the “warm up” before the real performance. And the second one shows the whole performance. Due to using only one camera Sohrab isn’t shown in the second video but you can hear him.

The line-up is:
