"The moment that best captured 1993's Telluride Film Festival came when three musicians from Cambridge, Mass., were creating a percussion thunderstorm during a silent film from Germany, while a real thunderstorm boomed outside."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

This trio's live soundtrack work has been sending waves of shock and delight throughout the film world, emanating from their smashing appearances at the Telluride Film Festival in 1993 and 1994. Since then, the Orchestra has appeared in theaters all over the US and Europe, including Lincoln Center in New York, and you've heard their music on NPR, probably without even knowing it. Keyboardist Caleb Sampson, and percussionists Ken Winokur and Terry Donahue (of the Concussion Ensemble) employ a broad palette, ranging from orchestral strings and brass, piano, accordian, voice and harpsichord, all the way to tribal and industrial percussion. Alloy's live appearances galvanize audiences: we get plenty of calls and response cards in the wake of their tours.

Alloy Orchestra: Terry Donahue (percussion, Accordion); Caleb Sampson (sythesizers); Ken WInokur (percussion)
Music from the films Plain Crazy, Lost World, Nosferatu, Metropolis and The Unknown.
