The Invisible Lighthouse

Thomas Dolby is currently on tour, and if you have any fondness for the man or his music, you’ll want to see this show. For that matter, if you have any interest in independent film-making, you’ll want to see this show. I saw it last night, and I’m still trying to process what I saw. This is slightly inconvenient, as the review I wrote of it is already online.

Dolby has made a film about the Suffolk coast where he grew up and now lives again, about being surrounded by history, about memory and story and impermanence. Then he left the film unfinished, so he can narrate and play it to small audiences with the help of a world-class sound designer.

And that is only one part of the evening in store for you if you go. Don’t miss it.

    You just took me back nearly thirty years, when I saw him in concert. I had no idea he was from my neck of the woods, here in the East of England! I looked up the details of the lighthouse and saw Shingle Street nearby. My favourite song from The Golden Age of Wireless was Cloudburst at Shingle Street.
