Minima’s music is an audacious 21st-Century interpretation of the images of silent and avant-garde film. Formed in 2006, Minima perform in cinemas and arts centres, as well as music and film festivals and unexpected venues. Minima’s repertoire includes silent feature films: surrealism, horror and science fiction, as well as silent short films, animations and improvised performances.
One of the band’s scores is for the 1922 horror classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror, and this year is the 90th Anniversary of the film’s release. One of the silent era’s most influential masterpieces, Nosferatu’s eerie, gothic feel - and a chilling performance from Max Shrek as the vampire - set the template for the horror films that followed. Based on the Dracula story, this is a true spine-tingler with many now iconic scenes of the blood-sucking count. Darkly humorous and tender too - this is a story of yearning
and the search for fulfilment.
