‘For the Love of Noise’

On 18 May 2022, members were invited to watch the screening of a feature length film made by Alan Cross and local musician, Kevin Haugh, followed by a Questions and Answers session.  Entitled For the Love of Noise, this 55 minute documentary explored Brighton’s experimental music scene.

It featured numerous devotees of this little known genre and explored how it came about and where it is going in future.  As one member commented in the Q & As afterwards, ‘it was quite different to anything heard in Rustington!’  Whilst musically it was perhaps challenging at times, we all learned something about a little known side to Brighton’s alternative music scene.

Technically, the film was very well made, cutting in some good drone footage and general scenes around a busy Brighton city centre to accompany the various interviews. From necessity, it included some footage filmed by others at pre-pandemic music gigs, but the film footage made by Alan was shot on his Canon EOS R5 camera, nicely colour graded and edited using Da Vinci Resolve.  All members present were agreed that the photography and graphics were excellent.

Thank you Alan.
