Thomas Dolby: Film and Performance - The Invisible Lighthouse Tour

Wednesday, Nov 13, 2013 7:00p

Like many lighthouses around the world, it’s becoming obsolete as ships adopt satellite navigation. With global warming and beach erosion threatening its very foundations, it’s soon going to be a pile of rubble left to fall into the North Sea.
Thomas Dolby’s The Invisible Lighthouse Tour is a unique transmedia performance, where he accompanies the screening with narration and linking songs from various stages of his career, including ‘Cloudburst At Shingle Street’ through 'Oceanea’ and beyond.

Nerdy-cute Thomas Dolby became an unlikely 1980s icon thanks to his unique presence in MTV videos, and his penchant for catchy synth hooks and danceable programmed beats. The keyboardist/programmer got his start in the late '70s with Bruce Woolley and the Camera Club (featuring future Buggles Trevor Horn and Geoffrey Downes), and quickly established himself as a sideman of distinction, crafting memorable synthesizer parts for a diverse array of pop and rock acts....

Some good tunes

Though he is best known for his somewhat goofy "She Blinded Me With Science," he actually has a number of very nice songs in his repertoire. He is no doubt a master at synthesizer programming, enabling him to come up with some very unique and interesting sounds to great effect. I really admire some of his basslines as well, and some of them sound Jaco-influenced. "The Flat Earth" is the album I've heard, which is hit-and-miss as far as the quality of the songs, but the better tracks on the album are extraordinarily moving. Also check out the songs "I Love You Goodbye" and "Budapest By Blimp." If you weren't impressed with "She Blinded Me With Science," you may find some of this other songs much more appealing. Sadly, he isn't touring in California this year. :(
