About

The Fleet Drifters (1929) Live + Seiners (premiere). Atmospheric double bill of film + live music and spoken word. Sound artist, nature beatboxer and composer Jason Singh performs his live soundtrack to John Grierson’s monumental silent documentary film Drifters . Premiering alongside Battleship Potemkin in 1929, Drifters follows North Sea herring trawlermen through their dramatic daily routines as well as the industry’s struggles between tradition, modernity, and nature. Originally commissioned by BFI, Jason’s critically acclaimed and totally unique solo score combines live vocal sound effects, beatboxing techniques and live sampling to create a thrilling cinematic experience. “So powerful and so beautifully done.” - Mark Kermode, The Observer on Jason Singh – Drifters Opening each performance, landscape writer, Sarah Acton presents a newly commissioned piece featuring poetry, field recordings, local musicians and stories of the fishing communities of the South West. Accompanied by atmospheric visuals by community environment charity Common Ground. https://jasonsinghthing.com/ https://sarahacton.co.uk/
