Nosferatu With Live Music Score

In 1838, Thomas Hutter is sent from the fictional German town of Wisborg to Transylvania by his employer, the estate agent Knock, to visit new client Count Orlok in his castle.

Saturday 28th Oct, 9pm. St. Joesph's Hall  -  Sponsored By First Choice Utility Options

  • Director: F.W. Murnau
  • Cast: Max Schreck, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schröder, G.H. Schnell, Ruth Landshoff
  • 94 minutes,
  • Germany 2022, Cert: PG

When he stops at an inn, the locals are frightened by the mere mention of Orlok's name…

F.W. Murnau’s silent horror classic is the first, if unauthorised, adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Its eerie, gothic atmosphere, embodied most chillingly by Max Schreck’s Count Orlok, can still send shivers down the spines of a hardened modern cinema audience.

The screening will take place in a specially transformed St. Joseph’s Hall, featuring a suitably frightful set design by Fermanagh artist Donna Bannon.


This is set to become a very special night, early booking is advised!


 

Live Score, Live Musicians

 

Dark Mountain Radio, formerly APO-33, performed at Clones Film Festival in 2021 with another silent classic, Man of Aran. This time round, they have chosen Nosferatu especially for CFF, and the festival’s seasonal timing could not be more perfect.

Dark Mountain Radio at its core is Robbie Perry and Simon O’Reilly who are working closely with guest composer and musician Rita Perry on this adventure. Drawing from ambient soundscapes with eclectic folk instruments and other electronica, Dark Mountain Radio will transmit their thought-provoking modulated frequencies into the mind’s eye of the people of Clones…. Be warned!

Dark Mountain Radio

Robbie Perry

Robbie is a musician and composer with Dead Can Dance. Recent works have included the soundtrack for Redemption of a Rogue, compositions and performances with Manchan Magan & Otherworld as well as the formation of APO-33 and Dark Mountain Radio for ambient scores to silent movies and other eclectic ramblings.

Currently, he is working on an album of collected works with singer and composer Lisa Gerrard. Amongst other eccentric forays into the wilderness, he also designs musical instruments both acoustic and electronic for a variety of workshops in community and educational settings.



Simon O’Reilly

Simon is a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, music video maker and cofounder of the Hedge School Festival. He has a recording studio near the Cliffs of Moher collaborated with such well-known musicians as the The ConTempo Quartet, Myles O’Reilly, Rufus Nightjar, Steve Wall, Davey Spillane, Twin Headed Wolf, Kila, Luka Bloom, Susan O’Neill, and The Monks of Glenstal.

He has written music for award-winning films and documentaries including Sundance Award winner The Summit and is a member of the band APO-33 who perform live music scores to films.



 Rita Perry

Rita is a composer and multi-instrumentalist drawing inspiration from her Irish-Catalan background. While presenting an eclectic blend of sounds, she sings in a mixture of English, Català and Castellaño in order to avoid being understood.

Having recently completed a Master of Arts degree in Music Therapy, some of Rita’s work focuses on the complex physiological and phycological impacts of sound with a person-centred and community-based approach.
