Inspired by the Making a New World season, Field Music brings a night of sound, song and animation set against the dramatic backdrop of IWM North.

Taking influence from a rare document in IWM’s extensive collections – a graphic record which captures the moment the guns fell silent, Field Music will explore the energy, hope and fragility brought about by the end of the First World War.

The duo, comprising Sunderland-based brothers Peter and David Brewis, boast several critically acclaimed albums including Commontime (2016) and Plumb (2012) and a reputation for innovative and varied live performances. Since forming in 2004, they have become known for a deconstructionist approach to music and songs, carving a niche in their approach to albums, soundtracks and collaborations. In 2016 they helped commemorate the Battle of the Somme by writing the soundtrack to 14-18 NOW’s commissioned film Asunder

This event is part of IWM’s Making a New World season of exhibitions, installations and immersive experiences taking place at IWM London and IWM North, exploring themes of remembrance and how the First World War has shaped today’s society.

Please note, this performance is standing-only.
