NEW MOVIE SCORE. Gary Lucas. The GoddessKnown for his experimental and constantly shifting sound grounded in American folk-blues, Gary Lucas is back, accompanying the 1934 Chinese silent film “The Goddess”. Directed by Wu Yonggang and starring the incomparable Shanghai diva Ruan Lingyu, ‘The Goddess’ epitomizes the tragic tales common in the films from the ‘golden age’ of Chinese cinema. Lucas’ live score draws on his bluesy arrangements of 30’s Shanghai pop of the period as featured on his celebrated 2001 album “The Edge of Heaven: Gary Lucas Plays Mid-Century Chinese Pop”(Knitting Factory Records).

Over the course of his career, Lucas has recorded and performed with artists such as Jeff Buckley, Leonard Bernstein, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, John Cale, Bryan Ferry, Patti Smith, Chris Cornell, Peter Hammill, John Zorn, Future Sound of London, Roswell Rudd. Recently, Lucas has composed original film scores for classic, artistic films, which he has performed and special screenings at The Havana Film Festival, The New York Film Festival, the London Jazz Festival, among other locations.
