THE CREATIVE MARTYRS
Comedic Dark Cabaret
Satire, surrealism and song from the charmingly sinister ukulele and cello duo. With their Weimar Berlin stylings and their cutting edge satirical references, The Creative Martyrs are the perfect combination of modern and vintage entertainment.
A curious, bawdy hinterland between the Weimar Republic and Noel Coward, they may have just crafted a new Belle Epoch worth escaping to. The List
A Silent Film with a Live Score
F. W. Murnau’s original and haunting Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror is brought to life with a new score by Graeme Stephen, played live by a trio of musicians including the composer. This German silent film from the 1920’s still has the power to chill and enchant through Max Schreck’s masterful performance as the predatory vampire.
The frightful shadow of the vampire slides up a staircase to the reverberating strains of electric guitar … The grainy images flickering on screen are vintage, but the musical accompaniment is as contemporary as you can get: welcome to the world of guitarist Graeme Stephen, a widely respected guitarist on the Scottish jazz scene who in recent years has been turning his compositional talents to “live” scores which he and colleagues perform for silent movies The Scotsman
