The Silverscreen Sextet features Oakland-based Vijay Anderson and Hafez Modirzadeh as well as 4 of Los Angeles's most iconic underground musicians: Bobby Bradford, Vinny Golia, Roberto Miranda, and William Roper. Our first show was on Jan 16, 2017, Martin Luther King Day. This show included the digital artwork of visual artist Tim Hicks, consisting on various images/videos of Los Angeles. These visual clips showed some of Los Angeles's disparate cultures, histories of protest, and economic disparity. The concert was also inspired by MLK's message of peaceful protest and passive resistance.The sextet performed a 70 minute continuous suite of music which featured the unique instrumental voices of everyone in the group.
