The Film and the Music
'Minima are one of the
Nosferatu (1922, 81 mins)
Few films have had a more profound and lasting impact on the horror genre than F.W. Murnau’s prime example of German Expressionism, directed to evoke unsettling chills with a strong visual appeal. This unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula features symphonic lighting, rhythmic editing and horror imagery that has been copied endlessly ever since.
Minima’s music is an audacious 21st-Century interpretation of the images of silent and avant-garde film. The ensemble of drums, bass, guitar and cello combine hypnotic post-rock beats with quasi-classical arrangements. Formed in 2006, Minima perform in cinemas and art centres, as well as music and film festivals.
