Ed’s Coed!

Ed’s Coed – silent film with live music

October 12 and 13 – 7pm

180 PLC University of Oregon


“Ed’s Coed” is the first feature-length film ever made by students and Beta Collide will be performing a newly assembled score for it that includes songs and stylings of the time and original compositions by Brian McWhorter.

In 1929, students of the University of Oregon in conjunction with their professors, shot this wonderful film about college life at the UO. The film shows a remarkable view of the UO campus at the time and includes cameo performances by notable personalities on campus of the time, including Dean John Straub and Bill Hayward (on the track!).BETA COLLIDE

Tyler Abbott, bass
Aaron Trant, drumsFor anyone around Eugene in the 90s, you might notice that Brian McWhorter, Kyle Sanna and Aaron Trant are all performing – they were all members of the After Quartet – a student group at UO who performed with silent films regularly. This will be a reunion of sorts! This performance is made by possible by Cinema Studies and the School of Music and Dance.
