Half Memory: Live Performance
Sunday 28 April, 7.00PM
THE CLASSIC, TYNESIDE CINEMA
After the huge success of Half Memory, a week-long radio broadcast in January on basic.fm, we are delighted to present the live audio-visual performance in The Classic auditorium, featuring Warm Digits and Richard Dawson.
Half Memory is about the excavation of memory and imagination. It revisits the fleeting moment and the un-commemorated experience. Devised by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums in partnership with Tusk Music and Pixel Palace, Half Memory is a unique creative production commissioning the talents of musicians, Warm Digits and Richard Dawson to respond to material they’ve unearthed in the vast museum archives and collections.
Richard Dawson is a collision of opposites, his hoarsely cracking voice rising to a delirious soar that’s
been compared to Tim Buckley and Richard Youngs. Dawson has taken inspiration from photographs, letters, newspapers and illustrations and turned these obscure North East tales into something quite magical, The Glass Trunk.
Warm Digits’ live electronics, guitar and drums blend a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, My Bloody Valentine
and Giorgio Moroder. They have created Interchange, a stunning film used digitised stills and found footage of a huge civic engineering project in the 1970s and composed a hypnotic soundtrack to accompany it.
This event also marks the launch of this commissioned work where you can purchase your copies of Interchange (DVD and CD) and The Glass Trunk (CD)
Tickets for the Half Memory are available now in person from the Tyneside Cinema Box Office, by telephone on 0845 217 9909 or you can book online here
