What does Nosferatu sound like?

Jacob Topen, 23

This re-edited version of F.W Murnau’s 1922 classic film has been condensed to 20 minutes, telling the story with highlights from the original movie. Now with a fully orchestrated, semi-electronic contemporary score, Jacob Topen has created bespoke instrument sounds and attempted to use music as a method of reawakening the terror hidden within the silent film, making it more accessible to audiences of today.
