About the Film 

Famed Danish director Carl Theodor. Dryer's film Vampyr (1932) is among his finest works. Dryer's Vampyr uses a soft-focus technique to conjure a hallucinatory dreamscape—or in this case, a nightmare. Allan Grey, a student of the occult, stumbles upon the village of Courtempierre, which has fallen under the curse of a vampire, and he becomes entangled in its mystery. Can he save the village from its spell and escape the clutches of evil therein?

Cooney pulls together different groups for each of his film projects, creating diverse mash-ups of musical personalities from different music scenes to create lively new platforms for interaction and creativity. His scores are tightly composed, time-coded and thematic but also have plenty of room for improvisation and interaction between players.
