Paul Neufeld Society Orchestra
The Society Orchestra is a group playing music from a non-existent place and time.
Turn of the 20th Century New Orleans, Buenos Aries, Moscow, 1920s Mississippi,
1880s and 1940s New York, the Mexican Revolution, Carles Ives, the films of
Sergei Eisentstein, minimalism, brand new pieces, pop songs. All of these elements
make up the sound of these four musicians and the place this music is from. They
all dress nicely and can play background music at parties and can also scare the
pants off of you.
Paul is composing music for the accompaniment of silent films to be performed by
the Society Orchestra. The short films of the Lumiere Brothers in the 1890s, and
Que Viva Mexico by Eisenstein.
