Alloy Orchestra is a silent film accompanying group.  Roger joined on keyboard in 1997.  Terry Donahue (middle) remains on percussion and accordion (he played in No Man), and Ken Winokur (left) remains on percussion and clarinet (he played on Roger Miller’s Exquisite Corpse, No Man’s Band, and others).  The group composes their own scores to silent film, and features a rack of “junk percussion” along with Roger’s orchestral keyboards. They are on many DVD and Blu-Ray releases, as well as CDs.

Roger Ebert said “Alloy Orchestra is the best in the world at accompanying silent film.”
