Thomas Dolby, musician, record producer and, now, award winning independent film-maker will
be touring the UK in September and October 2013.
The British Synth player had chart success in the 1980s with hits like ‘Windpower’, ‘Hyperactive!’
and ‘She Blinded Me With Science’.

With global warming and beach erosion threatening its very foundations, it’s soon going to be a

Over the past year Thomas has taught himself to become a writer, film-maker and editor in order to produce this impressionistic documentary that follows in the vein of his music and lyrics,
describing it as “a kind of tone poem with music and moving images.”
Thomas Dolby’s The Invisible Lighthouse Tour is a unique transmedia performance, where he
accompanies the screening with live narration and a musical soundtrack linking songs from various
stages of his career, including ‘Cloudburst At Shingle Street’ through to ‘Oceanea’ and beyond.
Right on Thomas!!! Keep the DIY Flag flying high!!!!
