This unique live performance combines the shadowy world of Benjamin Christensen's 1922 documentary/Fantasy/Drama of the history of Witchcraft in seven parts with mesmerising musical accompaniment by Stephen Horne (Piano, flute, accordion) and Tony Orrell (Percussion and electronics).

Stephen Horne
Stephen has long been considered one of the world's leading silent film accompanists. Based at London's BFI Southbank and playing all major UK venues such as the Barbican Centre and the Imperial War Museum, he has recorded music for DVD releases, BBC TV screenings and museum installations of silent films. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances, sometimes simultaneously. He regularly performs internationally at film festivals in Pordenone, Telluride, San Francisco, Cannes, Bologna, Berlin, Hong Kong and Morocco and has performed at New York's Lincoln Centre and Washington's National Gallery of Art. www.stephenhorne.co.uk

Tony Orrell
Tony has partnered with musicians as diverse as Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), Adrian Utley (Portishead) , Jerry Dammers (Specials) and renowned conductor Charles Hazlewood to perform unique live accompaniments to Silent Film. Ranging from slapstick to Victor Sjostrom's epic tragi-comic He - Who Gets Slapped performed at the South Bank with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Tony relishes the opportunity to combine improvisation with agreed thematic material and experimental electronics with acoustic instruments. He has also worked on improvised concerts with John Garden (Scissor Sisters), Matthew Bourne, Ray Russell, and saxophonist Andy Sheppard. http://www.electricpavilion.org/dugout/snv/artists/tonyo/
