On the Somme - "The region of Picardy in Northern France was the location of some of the heaviest fighting along the Western Front in the First World War. Peter Bromley’s cinematically rich On the Somme presents a multi-faceted depiction of the landscape of this area. Despite the unmistakable tranquillity of the region, the film conveys the sense with which the conflict and its casualties are written in to the land itself"
Imperial War Museum London

On the Somme - "The particular creative challenge of the project itself is immense – to creatively treat a period of the first world war history - a period characterized by a new phase in human barbarity - one that would produce carnage and destruction to life on an industrial, hitherto unknown scale... this brings me to think about the film as a piece of visual poetry, a poetic treatment of a changing visual landscape as much as an historical meditation. In the arresting beauty of the images, the war seems to be some distant nightmare - the many thousands of dead who were never given a proper burial still only just a footfall beneath the surface"
David Somerset British Film Institute

1968 Film Group produce Featurette on the 'Battle of the Somme' filmed on location in Picardie, Northern France, across 2012. Using image and sound the film captures the landscape today where thousands perished and are still missing.

Charles Hayward has performed and recorded innovative work for over thirty years and remains an icon of modern music. Beyond his awe-inspiring ability as a drummer lies broader artistic expression which combines a fascination with songwriting, sonic composition akin to painting and the 'synesthesia' of sound and image.

Peter Bromley’s new documentary Various Songs is about 2 musicians, Pete Fij, former frontman of Adorable and Polak and Terry Bickers, guitarist with The House of Love and Levitation. Both are former label-mates of Creation Records, one of the most important record companies of the 80s and 90s. The film captures a highly creative time for the pair during which they release a new album. There is footage of Pete and Terry in the studio, interviews with them and key individuals who had a role in their musical life. Bromley’s film is a unique document of two musicians who are passionate about playing and recording music.

Charles Hayward has performed and recorded innovative work for over thirty years and remains an icon of modern music. Beyond his awe-inspiring ability as a drummer lies broader artistic expression which combines a fascination with songwriting, sonic composition akin to painting and the 'synesthesia' of sound and image.

Hayward has always been artistically ambitious. In the late 70's his trio This Heat hit the 'New Wave' with a genuine alternative. He recalls long and intense discussion between group members at rehearsals, mental 'limbering up' that was embodied in the challenging aesthetic and political sensibility of their recordings and performance. This Heat was at the avant-garde of the punk explosion and their cerebral and visceral impact still sound unique and unforgettable.

Hayward continues to mesmerise audiences to this day. Working as a solo artist, his speed, dexterity, timing and sheer athleticism with a drum kit overflows into the poetry of his performance and song. When he collaborates his playing becomes an equal constituent in a collective exploration of musical expression and communication. It began with free-jazz but continues to evolve. It’s little surprise that John Coltrane is a major influence. For Charles Hayward, live, ‘controlled’ improvisation continues to inspire him and sits comfortably alongside his other solo and collaborative endeavours.

Charles Hayward Recorded Now Available Online.
www.vimeo.com/ondemand/charleshayward

Charles Hayward has performed and recorded innovative work for over thirty years and remains an icon of modern music. Beyond his awe-inspiring ability as a drummer lies broader artistic expression which combines a fascination with songwriting, sonic composition akin to painting and the 'synesthesia' of sound and image.

Hayward has always been artistically ambitious. In the late 70's his trio This Heat hit the 'New Wave' with a genuine alternative. He recalls long and intense discussion between group members at rehearsals, mental 'limbering up' that was embodied in the challenging aesthetic and political sensibility of their recordings and performance. This Heat was at the avant-garde of the punk explosion and their cerebral and visceral impact still sound unique and unforgettable.

Hayward continues to mesmerise audiences to this day. Working as a solo artist, his speed, dexterity, timing and sheer athleticism with a drum kit overflows into the poetry of his performance and song. When he collaborates his playing becomes an equal constituent in a collective exploration of musical expression and communication. It began with free-jazz but continues to evolve. It’s little surprise that John Coltrane is a major influence. For Charles Hayward, live, ‘controlled’ improvisation continues to inspire him and sits comfortably alongside his other solo and collaborative endeavours.

On the Somme - "The region of Picardy in Northern France was the location of some of the heaviest fighting along the Western Front in the First World War. Peter Bromley’s cinematically rich On the Somme presents a multi-faceted depiction of the landscape of this area. Despite the unmistakable tranquillity of the region, the film conveys the sense with which the conflict and its casualties are written in to the land itself"
Imperial War Museum London

On the Somme - "The particular creative challenge of the project itself is immense – to creatively treat a period of the first world war history - a period characterized by a new phase in human barbarity - one that would produce carnage and destruction to life on an industrial, hitherto unknown scale... this brings me to think about the film as a piece of visual poetry, a poetic treatment of a changing visual landscape as much as an historical meditation. In the arresting beauty of the images, the war seems to be some distant nightmare - the many thousands of dead who were never given a proper burial still only just a footfall beneath the surface"
David Somerset British Film Institute

1968 Film Group produce Featurette on the 'Battle of the Somme' filmed on location in Picardie, Northern France, across 2012. Using image and sound the film captures the landscape today where thousands perished and are still missing.
