Thomas Butler     New Work David Sawer         The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra David Sawer         The Lighthouse Keepers

Red Note Ensemble and Red Note Advanced Academy. In the depths of East Lothian’s picturesque farmland, the Granary at Eastfield’s lovely 18th century steading is an exciting new space for the festival. Red Note inaugurate it with two highly dramatic pieces by one of Britain’s most original composers. The 1928 silent film The Life and Death of 9413 is a pioneering work of avant-garde cinema for which David Sawer has composed a wonderfully atmospheric score. The Lighthouse Keepers is a terrifying story of a keeper and his son trapped in their lighthouse, portrayed in the manner of a radio play for two actors with highly coloured and tension filled music.

‘Sawer ’s music is often brilliantly inventive’ The Telegraph
