About the event

The Film Nosferatu (1922) is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre. Notable as the firstcinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting andunforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilledcinema goers 100 years ago. Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screeningof the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend ofelectronic and acoustic instruments performed live by the composer and, combined with FWMurnau’s iconic images, makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience. The Composer Born into a musical family in Coventry, Chris Green began playing guitar at the age of eight andpiano from the age of nine, and plays most things with fretted strings or keys. Largely selftaught, he’s worked in a variety of musical genres including folk, theatre and early music. He’s aregular musician at Shakespeare’s Globe and was also one of the musicians on BBC’s Poldark,appearing in series 1 and 2. He also writes and composes, having adapted The Wind in the Willows (2017) forGreenMatthews as well as A Christmas Carol: In Concert (2018), which London TheatreReviews described as “A delightful show… a lively retelling” In 2018, he released his first solo album Switched-On Playford, which fuses 17th-centurydance music with electronica, using a blend of early instruments, synths and loops. It wasdescribed by fRoots as “bloody brilliant…. an exquisitely-rendered and endlessly satisfying piece ofwork.”
