SILENCIO draws a timeline: from the very birth of experimental motion pictures — the first animation — through to the most current technologies.
This performance explores over 100 years of painstaking endeavour to create impossible dreams through moving image. Includes rare films from early animation legends Hans Ricter and Emil Cohl, and moving animation by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney, the extraordinary duo SOUNDTRAK creates a wonderful aural world with live music and sound to complement these cinematic gems.
Featuring master percussionist Ben Walsh and string virtuoso Shenzo Gregorio — SOUNDTRAK brings together strings, drums and technology to make some of the most unlikely sonic textures possible from two human beings. They will follow the screening/performance of ‘Silencio’ with a celebratory set of exhilarating improvised live music.

SHENZO GREGORIO is a multi-award winning musician known for his work with the celebrated FOURPLAY quartet.
