osferatu with live score composed and played by Viola Dana.

This was an amazing experience down at Scarborough Beach at the Sunset Verandah - Big Top tonight. You unfortunately don't have the chance to see this performance at the rest of the Fringe as it was one night only. Not the usual Fringe 1 hour show. Not something the performers could do over and over - this is intense work.

They played a very good restoration of the classic horror film Nosferatu, and the band provided the score to it - live and with no stops.

This adds true intensity to cinema. For nearly two hours the band played constantly building the sound picture and the soul of the film.

As the band took their bows, it was clear that despite making it look and sound easy, playing to an unremitting conductor was physically and mentally exhausting. But exhilarating too and the audience certainly picked it up.

I never knew anybody was doing this sort of thing locally and I'm going to keep my eye on them.

They will be doing Buster Keaton's The General at the Hyde Park Festival on the 14th and I urge you to go, because it is quite stupendous to have this cinematic experience. More info here http://www.vincent.wa.gov.au/Y.....ummer_Concert_14_Feb

10/10 fantastic and being invited to watch Young Frankenstein in company with the original cast on The Sid and Nancy Scale.
