*More About This Episode* Christian Artists Interview: Nosferatu – Curse of the Vampire Film Composer
“I wanted to use my art to make a difference in the world... to bring healing and God’s love to this world.” – Philip Shorey
Philip Shorey Bio Curse of the VampirePhilip Shorey, a graduate of The Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis, has worked in the Twin Cities area as a composer for theatre and film since 2003. He has operated as an activist towards the healing of the human heart, and strives to work his compositions for this seminal purpose. He is the composer and conductor of the Curse of the Vampire Orchestra, and features theatrical statements for: orchestral, choir, electronica, and industrial percussion, set to the classic silent films—Nosferatu (1922) & The Kid (1921).
Philip has traveled the world extensively while performing his toy marionette theatre, The Suitcase Sideshow. He has performed in orphanages, refugee camps, prisons, sidewalks, and other unconventional venues—where he has learned a wide understanding of art, culture, and the human condition, which has been a significant influence on his music.
Here’s Philip Shorey’s Inspirational Takeaways for Christian Artists:
- The church is for you and not against you as a creative.
- Don’t wait. Start with what you have and where you are. God uses little things to do a lot.
- Get connected. You need camaraderie, connection, accountability as a creative.
- My greatest asset apart from the Holy Spirit is the fellowship I have with other artists... Find community.
- Experience other things that get your mind thinking in new directions, that expand your creativity and challenge your thinking.
- There’s nothing I can do that is because of me; it’s hundreds of miracles... it’s all because of Jesus. If we get that, if we’re not seeing a breakthrough then maybe we need to start fasting and praying.
- Anytime you see something in the Bible – something radical happen – it took a step of faith that was very uncomfortable! Be willing to get uncomfortable and lay your reputation on the line. Trust Jesus because he loves you more than anything and won’t let you down.
