Jozef van Wissem – Lute, Electronics, Beats, Electric Guitar, Found Bird Sounds
I was commissioned by Cinémathèque Française in Paris to compose the soundtrack to the restored original version of the “Nosferatu” film (1922). When I was writing the score I found a Dutch double 7 inch record with sounds of extinct birds on the streets of Rotterdam. I manipulated these found bird sounds by using electronics and added them to the score. “Beginning with a lute solo, his soundtrack incorporates electric guitar and distorted recordings of extinct birds, graduating from subtlety to gothic horror.” My soundtrack goes from silence to noise over the course of 90 minutes, he said, culminating in “dense, slow death metal.” The New York Times
