GARY LUCAS recently sold-out two consecutive live film score appearances— the first on June 5th at the Transylvania International Film Festival in the old Basilica in Cluj Romania,  where Lucas's live solo guitar score for Wu Yonggang’s classic 1934 Chinese silent film “The Goddess” was featured as part of the Focus China film series in the old Orthodox Basilica. Gary received a standing ovation for his live score, and much praise from the China Film Archive team behind the restoration of the original film print:

"Thank you very much Mr. Gary Lucas for playing the soundtrack to “The Goddess” at TIFF. Gary Lucas uses his guitar plus his understanding of the film to show the essence of “The Goddess" vividly. At the climax of the film, his guitar score drives the audience to tears. This is the best time I've seen famous diva actress Ruan Lingyu's show-stopping scene driven by music outside of China. Lucas' score promotes the integration of Eastern and Western cultures, so that European audiences can better understand the film.”

--Jiao Xiang, head of the China Film Archive restoration team, Beijing 2019.6.18

Gary then returned to NYC to play his live film score for “The Golem” (1920, d. Paul Wegener ad Carl Boese) on June 15th at a sold-out screening with a newly restored print of the film courtesy Kino-Lorber-- part of an ongoing retrospective of his live film scores at The Metrograph, NYC’s premier arthouse cinema,. curated by Jacob Perlin and Robert Melvin Rubin.


This year marks the 30th anniversary of Lucas’ score which he debuted with his collaborator Walter Horn at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria in 1989, and has since gone on to perform in 20 plus countries.

Next up: a free concert on the Joe’s Pub Outdoors Stage with his longstanding Chinese pop project THE EDGE OF HEAVEN,

 featuring Feifei Yang on vocals and erhu and Jason Candler on sax—part of the Make Music New York Festival.
