Groundbreaking tour exposes the Hayward Fault
Residents of California can appreciate some of the greatest natural beauty our country: numerous beaches, the wonders of the redwoods, desert life, and farmlands that supply some of the best fruits and vegetables available. Such diversity spread across one state, along with decent seasonal weather, only further defines the adventurous spirit that the state and its inhabitants are known for. However, danger lies beneath this beauty. Like many things, California has its faults, including one very specific fault that resides beneath our very feet.
An earthquake, the violent shaking of the Earth's crust, is the result of the sudden release of tectonic stress along a fault line or, depending on the region, from volcanic activity. Damage or destruction of buildings, highways, and landscapes are often left in the aftermath, an experience all too familiar in the Bay Area.
A not-so-silent Saturday night
While Charlie Chaplin and Charley Chase star in films that play without sound, Saturday night shows at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum are anything but silent. A pianist performs live accompaniment during each show; the result is a marriage between sights of the past and sounds of the present that captivates audiences every weekend in the Edison Theater.
Historically, silent films and sound are inseparable. In Silent Film Sound, author Rick Altman writes that silent film experts insist that music has always been a part of the experience, especially during a public screening. Whether it was an orchestra, a pianist or a soundtrack, critics argue that the concept of silent films did not exist without a sound component, and the pianists at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum continue that tradition today.
Judy Rosenberg and Bruce Loeb play regularly at the theater in Niles. Both started playing for film after contacting the Pacific Film Archive, an organization within the University of California, Berkeley that screens films and also manages a film library.
