Method to the Madness

Mad Professor

Trojan Records

LEE PERRY, Ruts DC, U Roy, Jamiroquai, the Orb and Massive Attack are among the artists featured on this two CD compilation of productions by Neil Fraser, the Mad Professor.

For 25 years he has been producing reggae for his south London Ariwa label. This album starts with four track recordings made in his front room, before drifting through punky political reggae and dub to techno and trip hop.

A reminder of the fertile British reggae scene.

Chris Doyle

National Film Theatre

Sunday 31 July

CHRIS DOYLE is the cinematographer behind the distinctive looks of films such as Hero, Rabbit Proof Fence and 2046.

He will be giving a talk on his approach to film making.

Doyle’s images are dominated by his distinctive use of colour and light, and graceful camera movement.

This is a rare opportunity to hear Chris Doyle speak about his experiences, inspirations and unique approach.

It is also a great chance to see some of his own DVD footage which will illustrate the discussion.
