Musician Klaus Nomi never became a household name, but as Snagfilms''The Nomi Song' shows, his otherworldly live performances and rock-disco-opera hybrid inspired a legion of classic musicians, including David Bowie whom Nomi backed up during Bowie's appearance on 'Saturday Night Live.'

Andrew Horn's award-winning documentary is part concert footage, part interview and part bizarre sci-fi film in line with Nomi's cosmic fixations. As Nomi's music and live performances -- replete with heavy make-up, bizarre hairstyles and multiple costumes -- began to earn him critical acclaim, the singer became the first prominent musician to be killed by AIDS in 1983. 'The Nomi Song' celebrates a truly unique musical figure.
