Visit to see the films

Johnny Butler & Dani Mari have united to create a series of short films & music inspired by Dario Argento's movie trilogy The Three Mothers (Le Tre madri), (Suspiria, Inferno, Mother of Tears). Johnny Butler combines sultry saxophone and other woodwind instrument melodies with Dani Mari's haunting witchy vocals. With the help of Todd Reynolds (Steve Reich, Bang on a Can) on violin, Rose Rutledge on flute, and Will Hanza on mandolin and acoustic guitar, the result is eerily akin to an otherworldly chamber orchestra. The creative process for the short films is unique in that the music is composed before the films are made.

Featured on WXPN, Brooklyn Vegan, Bloody Disgusting & Screamfix.
World Premiere at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.

Track Name: Sighs (Mater Suspiriorum)
Dark moon shadow over me
Spells travel you to your knees
Stolen glances blind the iris of your eye
Count the footsteps

I can hear you sigh
