On Wednesday, April 11th 2012, Dar Al Athar Al Islamiyah in coordination with L’Institut Français du Koweït held an incredible music event called “The Musinema Cello Quartet”. The presenters were Valérie Montembault , Florimond Dal Zotto, Jean-Baptiste Noujaim and Romain Desjonquères. It was a unique performance where all musicians were playing their cellos at the same time as presentations of old black and white films with Harold Lloyd: “Haunted Spooks” and “Doctor Jack”. This was by far one of my favorite Dar Al Athar events. The silent films were hilarious and the musicians were able to sync their music impeccably well with the films.
Here is a teaser montage of the breathtaking music the group of cello musicians played along with the silent film “Doctor Jack”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gvi9OtFIhLE
