The concert features Helix Collective’s 10-piece film-music ensemble, performing original soundtracks from the 1920-80s by composers from countries which formerly comprised the Soviet Union. The program presents music from iconic films including “It’s a Wonderful Life” with a score by Dimitri Tiomkin, “Man with a Movie Camera,” one of the earliest depictions of the cities of Ukraine on film, “The Cranes are Flying,” and “The Snowstorm.” Film highlights will accompany the original soundtracks, songs, and the most striking musical moments from the films.
About Helix Collective
Helix Collective are classical musicians busting out of the traditional mold. From crossover dance music, to storytelling, to film, television, and video game music, the Los Angeles-based ensemble takes the best of classical chamber music and makes it the life of the party.
Variety Magazine praised Helix Collective’s musical range moving from “moody urgency and edgy chamber-music sound” to the “sweetly romantic evoking wide-open spaces.”
Helix “has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal.” Called “dizzyingly virtuosic with exquisite musicianship and world-class range” by The Free Times and praised for “beyond-the-ordinary programming.”
Like the double helix, the ensemble is rearrangeable, flexible, and fuses the DNA of classical music into worlds where it’s never gone before.
Helix Collective’s Film Music Ensemble:
Helix Collective founded the L.A. Live Score Film Festival in 2012, a live soundtrack film festival that pairs film composers and indie filmmakers.

Clinton (Mortal Kombat), Layla Minoui (Vamparina), Jeff Cardoni (Silicon Valley), Eimear Noone (Video Games Live), Jeff Beal (House of Cards), Julia Newman (BONES), Laura Karpman (Lovecraft Country) and many more.
