Improvisations on silent film Battling Butler
Geerten Liefting, organ - Tivoli Vredenburg


Program Info:
Battling Butler film (by and with Buster Keaton) with live organ accompaniment

In the early days of silent film, the projectors would have rattled so loudly that it was nice to have live music playing for that reason alone. The imposing film organ, equipped with special sound effects, was the appropriate instrument for this. Geerten Liefting harks back to that tradition. The sound of the TivoliVredenburg organ fits wonderfully with the old films. With his improvisations, Liefting accompanies Buster Keaton in 1926 Battling Butler.
