Minima’s music is an audacious 21st-Century interpretation of the images of silent and avant-garde film. Formed in 2006, Minima perform in cinemas and art centres, as well as music and film festivals. Minima’s repertoire includes set scores to surrealist films, horror and science fiction, as well as silent short films and improvised performances. Minima have recently written scores for contemporary filmmakers; they also offer masterclasses in silent film accompaniment.
