about

I was privileged to see F.W. Murnau's classic of Weimar-era horror at Pruiss Hall, on the Ball State campus, many years ago, when I was still attending college. It was the first time I had ever seen an antique film on an actual theater screen, and the bonus was that a pianist performed an original score as live accompaniment. At that point, I had never recorded a single note of "experimental music" (I had only dabbled in punk rock), but the evening had a profound effect on me, putting me in another world.

Hence, I present to you my personal musical evocation and homage to "Nosferatu," the most compelling and eerie vampire film of all time. In the words of Edward Van Sloan, "I think it will thrill you. It may...shock you. I t might even HORRIFY you." So, until we meet again, many pleasant nightmares.

Hopefully, my various musics are ultimately like magic bullets that enter and impact at the base of the skull, ricochet around the brain chamber, and then leave a gaping exit wound in the forehead. You may hate them
