Tom Peters: Nosferatu

Director F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) stands as one of the most important films to come out of pre-World War II Germany. After almost 90 years, it still delivers chills! Tom Peters’ live electronic score seamlessly weaves through Nosferatu’s dark alleys to create an experience like no other. Peters is a composer and bassist in Los Angeles who specializes in creating music for silent films, performing original scores through looping electronics and synchronized electronic soundscapes.
