Award-winning guitarist and composer Graeme Stephen plays his live score to the Silent Film ‘The Penalty’ from 1927 accompanied by Elie Afif (Double Bass) & Davide Rinalde (Drums)

Graeme Stephen’s absorbing score blends strong melodic and rhythmic ideas with the artful use of looping and guitar effects to create a musical narrative that matches, but does not simply copy, the emotional and plot shifts and sequences of the film. Originally performed with a cellist in 2019, to some considerable acclaim, the composer has reworked ‘The Penalty’ for double bass and drums, with the latter alternating between more driving patterns and many moments of textured percussive beauty and subtlety. — Edinburgh Music Review
