We’re pleased to say that Field Music have been commissioned by Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival to compose a new cinematic score for seminal silent documentary 1929 Drifters. The film follows the working day of a herring fishing fleet as they set sail from the Shetland Islands to battle the elements of the North Sea fishing grounds.
We’re doubly pleased to say that we’ll be performing the score at a handful of events over the next few months, trebly so that it’ll be the original configuration of Field Music performing for the first time since 2007, with Andrew Moore on keys.
The first performance will be at the aforementioned Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival on 27th September. Tickets and more details here here.
The next announced performance will be at the Islington Assembly Rooms in London as part of the Illuminations festival on 9th November. Tickets on sale from 26 July + more info here.
