Carnegie Carnegie's Listen Locally commences with a unique audio-visual experience – the Pittsburgh premiere of Kyle Simpson’s original scores to Georges Méliès’ silent films: A Trip to the Moon (1902) and The Kingdom of Fairies (1903). Award-winning Pittsburgh composer and international artist, Kyle Simpson D.M.A. and his chamber orchestra will perform live with Pittsburgh’s Redline String Quartet. Méliès’ early twentieth century costumes, sets, and signature optical tricks are crafted together with Simpson’s eclectic compositional style with influences of Debussy, Stravinsky, Steve Reich and a nod to the cinematic style of John WIlliams and Alexandre Desplat.
