For obvious reasons, the live-music experiments of Puget Soundtrack work best when the movie has very little dialogue. Duncan Jones’s sci-fi masterpiece Moon is such a film. You can turn off the movie’s sound and watch in silence the strange moon-work of its one character, as he moves up and down the surface of the moon in a rover, or chills in the moonbase. Tonight, this silence will be filled by the ghostly music of the local band Postcard from the Badlands. The success of a Puget Soundtrack is entirely determined by the skill with which the musicians capture and infuse the silent images on a screen with new and unexpected feelings.
