Description

Local archive films with live soundtracks by ROGER ENO, BROADS, MILLY HIRST and EASTERN SEABOARD

A selection of archive films of the Norfolk coast from the East Anglian Film Archive will be brought to life by original live music scores in the beautiful surroundings on the Octagon Chapel.

In association with the British Film Institute’s Britain on Film project and Norwich Sound & Vision.

ROGER ENO is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and sound artist who cannot be easily categorised. His lush, emotive soundscapes quite easily swallow you whole. Roger’s powerful and versatile body of work has been frequently used in TV, theatre and film (Trainspotting and Mr Wroe’s Virgins - for which Roger was BAFTA nominated, Dario Argento’s Opera and Trevor Nunn’s NT production of Betrayal) www.rogereno.com

BROADS

Since 2013’s guitar/noise/hiss-based debut EP ‘Single Rev’ appeared on the Norwich music radar, James Ferguson’s Broads project has gone through a rapid and prolific evolution.

Reference points that run consistently through the Broads canon are repetition, developing textures, drone and incremental build-ups, and the band has drawn comparisons with artists as diverse as Mogwai, Broadcast and Max Richter whilst sharing stages with artists as diverse as Plaid, Mercury Rev and Winter Villains. Now a 2-piece - Ferguson having been joined by longtime collaborator Mark Jennings (Sukoshi, EPIA), Broads’ set for the BFI Britain on Film project will incorporate brand new material alongside re-purposing of existing pieces.

Broads' fourth studio album 'Field Theory' will be released in early 2018 on the Humm Recordings label.

MILLY HIRST has become a regular in Norfolk’s thriving music scene since the release of her self-titled alt-folk EP in 2012. She has performed across the country including sets at Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, as well as releasing the live album Equator, and single ‘Heptonstall Old Church’- chosen as the ‘Headphone Moment’ on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music. https://millyhirst.com/

Milly and Broads will be creating a collaborative soundtrack for this performance.

EASTERN SEABOARD
Expanding on the sound of their debut; Eastern Seaboard’s second album FORESTS combines melodic Americana and English pop with lush Indian drones and an array of exotic acoustic instruments. easternseaboard.bandcamp.com

Britain on Film is a major project from the BFI National Archive, Regional and National Archives and rights holders from across the UK that reveals new and unseen stories of our lives through the history of film. Unlocking the UK’s film and TV history – our national collection, much of it previously unseen – the season will open up our local histories and provide unprecedented online access to our screen heritage. As part of a major programme of digitisation, which started in 2012 and continues until the end of 2017, Britain on Film offers ways to discover, explore and engage with the newly digitised films.
