Austin's Alamo Drafthouse has offered countless treats to movie geeks over the years, so what better time than Halloween to offer another one? This Sunday, October 30th, the Alamo will premiere a brand new score from composer Graham Reynolds for F.W. Murnau's silent film classic Nosferatu (the first feature-film adaptation of Stoker's Dracula), performed live by Reynolds himself. Check out a preview clip from the film with the new score after the jump.
Visit the Drafthouse website for more info on the new Nosferatu score. Here's Graham Reynolds' bio straight from the Alamo:
Austin, Texas based composer-bandleader Graham Reynolds creates, performs, and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs and concert halls with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater to DJ Spooky to the Austin Symphony Orchestra. As bandleader of the jazz-based but far reaching Golden Arm Trio, Reynolds hasrepeatedly toured the country and released three critically acclaimed albums. As Co-Artistic Director of Golden Hornet Project with Peter Stopschinski, Reynolds has produced more than fifty concerts of world-premier alt-classical music by more than sixty composers, as well as five symphonies, two concertos and countless chamber pieces of his own. Reynolds music has been heard through-out the world on TV, on stage, in films, and on radio, from HBO to Showtime, Cannes Film Festival to the Kennedy Center, and BBC to NPR. His score to the 2006 Robert Downey, Jr. feature "A Scanner Darkly" was named Best Soundtrack of the Decade by Cinema Retro magazine. His awards include the Lowe Music Theater Award, four Austin Critic's Table awards, the John Bustin Award, an Amp Award, five Austin Chronicle Best Composer wins, a B. Iden Payne Award, Meet the Composer and Map grants, as well as support from the National Endowment for the Arts for several projects.
