Devil Music Ensemble to Perform Its Original Score to Silent Film Classic Nosferatu at Public Event Oct. 20 at Centenary College

SHREVEPORT, LA —The Devil Music Ensemble will perform its original score to the silent film classic Nosferatu on Friday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. in Centenary College's Kilpatrick Auditorium. The auditorium is located in the Smith Building at the corner of Kings Highway and Woodlawn Avenue. The event is free and open to the public as a public service of the Centenary Convocations Committee.

Devil Music was founded in 1999 by Brendon Wood to explore the many facets of music—rock, electronic, orchestral, folk, improvisation, incidental, and others. The group itself was ever-changing, as new members came and went, adding a variety to the sounds, and the style. Starting in 2002, Devil Music settled into the core group of Wood, Jonah Rapino (from the acclaimed, New Millenium String Ensemble), and Tim Nylander (former member of Say Zuzu).

Since then Devil Music has worked to present new, original, diverse works with performances in Boston and all over the country. Devil Music recently finished a U.S. tour, performing live soundtracks to silent films at movie theaters, performing arts spaces, rock clubs, college campuses and musuems. The attempt to pigeonhole Devil Music's sound has been frustrating audiences and critics since its incarnation six years ago, and will continue as such as long as the love of experimentation stays with the group.

The Devil Music Ensemble performs live accompaniment to silent film. The band is making seven-week tour of the U.S. this fall. The band performs original live scores to silent films and will be offering such films as the classic silent horrors "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" and the silent western comedy called "Big Stakes" on this tour.
