New film score: Vampyr

March 2016 sees the first performance of Minima’s collaboration with Stephen Horne with a new score to Carl Th. Dreyer’s early sound film Vampyr.

Stephen Horne has long been considered one of the leading silent film accompanists. Based at London’s BFI Southbank, he plays at all the major UK venues such as the Barbican Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Principally a pianist, he incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances.

This new score is a technically ambitious project that incorporates elements of the original soundtrack from 1932 and a new array of instruments. Click here for further information and a clip from the film with our soundtrack.
