Nosferatu Live Brighton with musical accompaniment

Presented by Yoshi Marshall

Yosi Marshall will be composing and playing music to accompany the 1922 silent horror film Nosferatu at the Brighton Unitarian Church in Brighton, which is very timely for Halloween.

It is a a silent German Expressionist horror film directed by F.W. Murnau and starring Max Schreck as Count Oriok, a vampire who preys on the wife of his estate agent, Greta Schroder, and brings the plague to their town.

Yosi will be playing piano, organ, synths, sax, clarinet, flute and percussion to accompany the film. He will improvise freely to suit the scene, whether it is comedic, tragic, action-packed or dialogue based – telling the story through the music. He is looking forward to giving you a taste of his talent.

He performed Charlie Chaplin Modern Times at the OSO Centre in Barnes to a packed house as well as having been a regular performer at the Classic Cinema Club, the International School of London and Addison Primary School. He has played musical accompaniment on such films as the Artist, Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lodger, The Passion of Joan of Arc, the Arabian Nights, the Man who Laughs, Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, Buster Keaton : The General, the Voyager, Balloonatic and the Electric House.
