Buster Keating & Score
EastSide Arts Festival, Live Events

Friday 11th August




2017 is the centenary of Buster Keaton’s debut screen appearance. Beloved by everyone from Samuel Beckett to Jackie Chan, his beautiful silent films remain as funny as when they were first screened.

Two of Northern Ireland’s most eccentric noisemakers are writing all-new scores for some of Buster’s funniest short films, performed live on a wide variety of instruments, with sound effects, and a bit of audience participation.

Colin Reid is one of Ireland’s premier guitarists and pianists. He composed The Third Policeman (starring Stephen Rea).

Reggie Chamberlain-King’s work as Sound Effects Artist been broadcast on BBC Radios 3&4 and in the USA and Canada.
