Continuing the music theme from the last blog, here are a couple of tracks I composed for the 1922 silent horror classic, NOSFERATU.
For a while, I had intended to compose a whole new score for the film, since I wanted to create some new music but my crappy organisational skills were preventing me from putting together my own film to score.
Quickly, it became clear that I don’t have as much free time as I thought, and it would take a VERY long time to complete 90 minutes of music. So I picked out two juicy scenes and got to work.
The first track, “Orlok Rises,” was completed in September 2014.
And yesterday, eventually, I finished part two, “Orlok Falls.”
It turns out it’s really quite difficult to score a silent film. There’s no rhythm to the editing so it’s hard to get a melody going and hit the dramatic beats, but I tried, so here they are.
