THE SOUND OF STORY: BARRY ADAMSON
PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL
17 & 18 NOVEMBER 2015
AN EXPLORATION OF SOUND AND MUSIC IN STORYTELLING
Multidisciplinary artist Barry Adamson is a speaker at The Sound of Story 2015: two days of talks, screenings and workshops that explore the creative potential of sound in the storytelling process.
Barry Adamson is a singer, songwriter, filmmaker, photographer and composer, whose music has been used as both the platform and background for documentaries, TV series, adverts, computer games and an Olivier Award-winning ballet by Sylvie Guillem and the Ballet Boyz.
A self-taught musician, he rose to prominence in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the bass player in British pop-punk band, Magazine. After a three year stint with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds he released his first solo album, Moss Side Story to great critical acclaim. Recognised as a composer able to tell a story with music, some of the film industry’s most intriguing mavericks have sought to work with him, including David Lynch on Lost Highway, Oliver Stone on Natural Born Killers and Danny Boyle on The Beach.
Having released nine studio albums, including the 1992 Mercury Music Prize nominated Soul Murder, Adamson has continued to tour globally.
Behind the camera, Adamson has translated his film noir style and dark comedy into a number of self-written, directed and scored short films. His latest, The Swing The Hole and The Lie, was shown during the Cannes Film Festival this year.
Adamson continues to blur the lines of film, music and art, and recently returned to the studio to record a new solo album.
