Llamadoll: Silent Shorts

Llamadoll is a Vermont-based project that melds silent film and original music in ways that are utterly magnificent and revelatory, charming and hilarious, entertaining and thought-provoking.

Llamadoll’s maestro is Johnnie Day Durand, a brilliant composer and virtuosic saw player with a deep knowledge of silent film. The music is an eclectic array of sounds that encompasses glockenspiel, saw, mbira, surf guitar, and percussion. Effects range from dreamy to jarring, and accompany the films in perfect and often-surprising ways.
