Warm Digits play a special one off event this Friday 29th August at the Great Hall of Newcastle’s Discovery Museum – a screening of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, bookended by two special Warm Digits performances.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the event starts with a unique short set of new Warm Digits material inspired by Vangelis, the composer of Blade Runner’s soundtrack. This will be followed by a full screening of the movie, following which we’ll play a further Digits set to round off the party.
The event – now sold out! – is organised by Screenage Kicks, who put together widescreen immersive pop up cinema events in the North. If you’re looking for stage times, try checking the event Facebook page nearer the time.
Our Vangelis set takes as its starting point his great and bizarre 1976 album La Fête Sauvage, taking flute and percussion samples and building two new semi-improvised pieces from them, followed by a cover version of the title track.
Screenage Kicks hope that ticket holders push out the boat and go full retro-futurist fancy dress: “have your human replica, bounty hunter, and twisted future shock attire ready to wear”…
We’re back at The Cumberland Arms on Friday 9 May 2014

Warm Digits started the new year with a brand new live session for BBC 6Music‘s Marc Riley.
You can listen again to the session here – we appear at 45min and 1h 16min, playing live versions of “The Connected Coast” (from “Interchange“) and a new song called “End Times”.
We recorded a third track – another newie, called “Wireless World” – for Gideon Coe’s show, which you can hear right at the end of his show (2h 51m).
We’re proud to be playing support to the legendary and fabulous ESG at Newcastle Think Tank on Monday 20 Jan. Details here, tickets here.
Thanks to Distraction Records and Alt Vinyl, here’s the deluxe vinyl edition of “Interchange”:
You get the album on 180g vinyl, a hand-screenprinted sleeve by Sam Grant at Blank Studios, with two additional prints as inserts (adapted stills from the films), a dvd of the experimental film for “Interchange”, a download code – and it’s all limited to 250 copies. Available right now for mail order.
