Meet the Artist - Yael Acher "Kat" Modiano


In a unique approach to silent film accompaniment, flutist/composer Yael Acher "Kat" Modiano provides a live electro-acoustic soundtrack to the German film Asphalt (1929, 93 min.). Set in Berlin, Asphalt tells the story of a femme fatale who steals jewels and seduces the cop sent to bring her in.
