He’s best known as the bassist, co-lyricist and co-founder of seminal ‘80s band Siouxsie and the Banshees, but in the last few years, Steven Severin has been making a name for himself scoring films. His latest project is Music For Silents, which has been described as “a programme of new scores for the 1928 surrealist classic The Seashell and The Clergyman.”
