Kinokonzert: Nosferatu Ensemble Offspring

Concert or Performance

23 Nov 2019

Building on the success of its KinoKonzert series, the Goethe-Institut is proud to present Sydney’s premier contemporary chamber group Ensemble Offspring and Perth-based composer Christopher Tonkin as they create and perform a live soundtrack for the silent film classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1921).

Nosferatu is often considered the world’s first vampire film. The movie by legendary German director FW Murnau is an expressionist adaptation of Bram Stoker’s original Dracula story. The silent masterpiece has inspired not only legions of filmmakers but also many composers.

Ensemble Offspring is an internationally renowned new music ensemble based in Sydney. The group of virtuoso musicians has performed worldwide and received many awards.

For this project, they will team up with Western Australian composer Christopher Tonkin who teaches at the UWA Conservatorium of Music in Perth and specialises in electronic music and sound installation.
