Neil Brand: The Sound of Horror + The Hands of Orlac (live accompaniment)

  • Running time 90mins plus film

How have composers set out to make us uneasy, fill us with dread and match the jump-shot with music that makes us susceptible to Horror? From the Universal monsters of the 30s, through silence, electronica, the avant-garde modernism of Hammer, names like John Carpenter and Dario Argento, up to today’s ubiquitous mix of music and sound design, Neil Brand takes us through the great scores that have brought the dead back to life...

Followed by a live piano performance to the classic silent masterpiece The Hands of Orlac.
