Program 535: Halloween Edition

KALW Broadcast Date: October 26, 2018 | Host: Randall Wong

The program features George Antheil’s score for the 1955 film, Dementia, directed by John Parker. Variety Magazine described Dementia as “maybe the strangest film ever offered for theatrical release.”

The Film is essentially a silent movie with a composed soundtrack, sound effects, and absolutely no dialogue. The protagonist, known only as the woman, is living in a surreal psychosexual nightmare complete with murders, alcohol, an evil jazz club, and dismemberment.

Also on the program is a re-imagined version of Krzysztof Komeda’s Lullaby from Rosemary’s Baby by the “toytronica” artist Twink.
