After tackling the soundtracks of Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” at last year’s SF Sketchfest, the Red Room Orchestra set their sights on recreating the soundtrack of the Coen Brothers’ classic comedy “The Big Lebowski.” From Bob Dylan and Meredith Monk to Kenny Rogers and Yma Sumac, no musical stone will be left unturned. Hold out some hope for the Creedence, and love it or hate it, we’re playing the f*ckin’ Eagles, man. Come dressed as your favorite Lebowski character, order a white Russian, and abide.
Formed by San Francisco producer and multi-instrumentalist Marc Capelle in 2017, the Red Room Orchestra is a collective of popular, jazz, classical, and electronic composers and performers who’ve played and recorded alongside the Bad Seeds, the Plastic Ono Band, Cibo Matto, Oingo Boingo, Sonic Youth, CAKE, American Music Club, Lou Harrison, the Steve Reich Ensemble, the Nels Cline Singers, Rodriguez, Iggy Pop, Tune-Yards, Bill Frisell, and more. They’ve offered live renderings of the music of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, reinterpretations of the soundtracks of Wes Anderson’s Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, and for SFFILM they composed and performed original scores for the short films from Stephen Parr’s Oddball Films archive.
“SF’s premier soundtrack interpreters and experimental large ensemble.” — CBS
