'Nosferatu' gets live African makeover

An acclaimed DJ duo will breathe new life into the first ever vampire film as part of this year’s BASS Festival. <br/> <br/> The Shrine Synchro System, aka DJs Rita Ray and Max Reinhardt, will provide an African inspired live soundtrack to accompany a screening of 1922’s <b>Nosferatu</b>. <br/> <br/> <center><img src="http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/protectedimage.php?image=LukeMcNaney/Shrine_Nosferatu(2).JPG_15062009"></center> <br/> <br/> The unconventional mashup is part of the festival’s African-inspired lineup. Running for its fourth consecutive year, BASS (British Arts and Street Sounds) Festival is this year exploring the theme ‘Inspired by Africa and Africans’. <br/> <br/> The Shrine will bring their sonic soundscapes, derived from a number of African musical styles, to Birmingham’s Electric Cinema on June 21. By choosing to soundtrack director F.W. Murnau’s ‘Symphony of Horror’, the pair’s performance will appeal equally to fans of African music and classic cinema. <br/> <br/> Nosferatu vs. The Shrine follows the duo’s involvement in last year’s collaborative live soundtrack for the first ever documentary <b>Nanook of the North</b>, which played to great acclaim at the Brit Doc and Barbican Film festivals. <br/> <br/> BASS Festival is the UK’s only month long celebration of urban music and art. Venues across London and the Midlands will play host to live music, theatre and dance performances, art exhibitions, and master classes. <br/> <br/> For more info on <b>The Shrine vs. Nosferatu</b>, visit www.bassfestival.co.uk. <br/>
