The Morning Of The Earth concert is going back on the road in January.
Based on the classic surf movie, the concert features original soundtrack performers Brian Cadd and Tim Gaze (Taman Shud) and guests Mike Rudd (Spectrum), Lior and Gyan.
The tour marks the 40th anniversary of the movie’s release. “Forty years ago I was privileged to be involved in writing and producing music for a revolutionary new kind of surf movie: MORNING OF THE EARTH. Freedom and breaking the rules was the order of the day and a most unique and eclectic collection of music became the ‘dialogue’ running under Albe’s superb pictures. Four decades on we are finally marrying this music with those pictures again, this time in a live performance setting. Incredibly exciting”.
The Morning Of The Earth movie was the creation of Albe Flazon. “Morning of the Earth has stood the test of time and perhaps is more important today in view of the increased number of people on the planet and the demands they are having on its resources and eco systems. We need more than ever to be reminded of this fragile system we have inherited and to a certain extent Morning of the Earth is a reminder that we are all truly responsible for our decisions and actions. It is important that we individually and collectively embody those qualities that will ensure that we live a sustainable life, not one based on over production and over consumption but one based on sensitivity to all life and on all levels on this Earth. Morning of the Earth reflects in a simple way how we can endure and sustain and enjoy our life here and leave a small footprint and a better world in our passing.”
