Award winning guitarist and composer Graeme Stephen has been breathing new life into classic early cinema with his silent film scores.
On the magical night of Sunday 30 October, he will be performing his acclaimed live score accompanying FW Murnau's 1922 classic German silent film, 'Nosferatu'. Some say that this is the most frightening of all Dracula adaptations. Graeme has won Scottish Jazz's Innovation Award 2013 for his soundtracks to silent film.
"The frightful shadow of the vampire slides up a staircase to the reverberating strains of electric guitar. The grainy images flickering on screen are vintage, but the musical accompaniment is as contemporary as you can get: welcome to the world of guitarist Graeme Stephen, a widely respected guitarist on the Scottish jazz scene who in recent years has been turning his compositional talents to live scores which he and colleagues perform for silent movies" The Scotsman
