O'Malley and Rehberg soundtracking Sunrise in Leeds

Stephen O'Malley and Mego label head Peter Rehberg are performing a live soundtrack to FW Murnau's film Sunrise as KTL in Leeds on 1 March. The live soundtrack was first performed as a commission from the Louvre in 2010, under O'Malley and Rehberg's KTL moniker, a project that has been going since 2006.

This screening, at Leeds Howard Assembly Rooms, will be the first UK performance of the live soundtrack. Sunrise was made in 1927 by FW Murnau (best known for the 1922 version of Nosferatu), who was invited to Hollywood by William Fox and given complete freedom to make a film.
