Our collaboration with Field Music, filmmaker Esther Johnson and producer Bob Stanley comes to London on Feb 12th.
Asunder marks the centenary of one of the most traumatic battles in military history. Co-commissioned by 14 – 18 NOW, the UK-wide arts programme to mark the First World War centenary, this ambitious film/music event explores the legacy of the Somme through the prism of a single city – Sunderland.
Asunder is a film by award winning film maker Esther Johnson, using local archive footage to tell the story of the city’s involvement, with narration from Kate Adie and Alun Johnston.
The soundtrack to the film is created by Sunderland band Field Music and Newcastle’s Warm Digits, who will perform the film score live at the Barbican, on this occasion joined by Sarah Hayes along with a string quartet.
You can listen to Andrew from Warm Digits talking about the project on the Barbican Podcasthere

Here’s a video for “Terminus”, taken from “Interchange” a Warm Digits album and series of films made for the project Half Memory. The work is based on images drawn from Tyne & Wear Archives of the 1970s construction programme for the Tyneside Metro system.
“Interchange” will be released as a CD + DVD set on Distraction Records, with a live premiere at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle, on 27 April 2013. More info here.
