Local band Viola Dana will be presenting the Perth premiere of their new soundtrack for the seminal silent horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror live at Luna on SX as part of this year’s Fremantle Festival.

Adapted from Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, FW Murnau's Nosferatu is a landmark piece of German expressionist cinema, and, some may argue, one of the most influential horror films from the history of the genre. Viola Dana member Kathy Corecig writes, “Despite being made 93 years ago, Nosferatu seems as spooky as ever and even fairly thematically relevant today. The fairly rudimentary visual effects by today’s standards seem to lend a greater degree of eeriness to the film than something slick and realistic, and the themes of fear of the unknown – and of contamination – are universal and everlasting. The rich and soulful combination of the cello, viola, guitar and drums that makes up Viola Dana’s sound naturally lends itself to illuminating Nosferatu’s dark and brooding imagery. However, as a band that has worked solely on comedic films to date, we’re forever trying to look for ways to musically bring in a bit of light-hearted perspective where it works!” Corecig has collaborated with Viola Dana drummer Pete Guazzelli to score this classic silent film.
