"Paulson seems to have channeled Spike Jones, Harpo Marx and
Victor Borge, but the mix is clearly his own."

WOMAN IN THE MOON
UC San Diego Library’s Scott Paulson directs the Library's resident silent film ensemble, the Teeny Tiny Pit Orchestra, in a live concert version — with theremin, synthesizers, harp, and aqua sonic waterphone — of this Fritz Lang-directed silent sci fi film, featuring Christian Hertzog on piano.
Woman in the Moon, produced in 1929, features a group of scientists and entrepreneurs who travel to the Moon in the hopes of finding gold. The film is known for its realistic science, elegant set design, superb acting, and brilliant special effects.
Presented by the UC San Diego Library & San Diego Public Library
Neil Morgan Auditorium, San Diego Public Library
330 Park Blvd, San Diego

When cinema was theatre and radio was young...
Scott Paulson is an award-winning soundscape artist who has been heard on radio, television, and film. His performance ensemble, the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, provides live music and sounds for silent film screenings, ballet productions, radio dramas, operas, and theatrical productions. At many of his live shows, Paulson asks the audience to assist: Strike a thundersheet! Use exotic wooden birdcalls! Roll out an elegant harp glissando! Play a Theremin, if you dare! In addition to his slapstick and experimental music activities, Paulson is an orchestral oboist, and also is the University Carillonneur at UC San Diego, performing live on Geisel Library's rooftop chimes. (Yes, he takes song requests!) Scott is the Exhibits & Events Coordinator at the UC San Diego Library, for which he founded and directs various festivals: The Short Attention Span Chamber Music Series, the annual Toy Piano Festival, The Not-So-Silent Film Festival, and a Paper Theatre Festival.
