Each month, Bakia Quartet presents a curated selection of silent films with a live musical accompaniment by Bakia Quartet. Past programs have included films by directors such as Charlie Chaplin, Salvador Dali, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, and George Melies.

Bakia Quartet is a contemporary improvisation group that specializes in multi-disciplinary performances. Formed in 2013, Bakia Quartet began by presenting improvised live scores to a series of classic and contemporary silent films and has since began to branch out to collaborate with other creative mediums including dance and theater. The freedom of improvisation allows the group to flow freely between different musical influences including classical, jazz, indie rock, avant-garde and everything in between. Bakia Quartet – Asher Kurtz (Guitar) Kenji Herbert (Guitar) Zack Nestel-Patt (Bass) Charlie Van Kirk (Percussion) – has been presenting concerts that strive to contextualize contemporary improvisation in a setting of artistic multi-disciplinary collaboration.
