Live vocal sound effects to classic fishing film Drifters

See this 1929 silent movie on Friday 23 January, 8pm.

DriftersVocal sculptor, Jason Singh performs a live vocal score to John Grierson's monumental silent film, Drifters (pictured, right). Premiering alongside Battleship Potemkin in 1929, Drifters follows North Sea herring fisherman through their dramatic daily routines as well as their underlying struggles between tradition, modernity, technology, the environment and nature. 

Singh’s score is a totally unique performance which combines live vocal sound effects, voice manipulation, beatboxing and live sampling with one of the most significant works in British film history.
