Following this tradition composer and Grammy® nominated performer Tom Peters creates new music for silent movies, connecting well-known masterpieces and lesser-known cinematic gems with modern audiences through cutting edge music. While the music you hear is current, it always serves the film, outlining the director’s vision and the actors’ performances in a way that is complementary to the action you see onscreen. Since 2008, Tom has created new scores for such classics as Nosferatu, THE CAT AND THE CANARY, PANDORA’S BOX, The CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI, THE LODGER: A STORY OF THE LONDON FOG, DER GOLEM and CHICAGO. His score for THE PASSION OF JOAN ARC premiered at the 2013 Toronto Silent Film Festival with acclaimed Viola da Gambist Joelle Morton.
