JOHN AVERY Nighthawks
John Avery is an English composer and sound designer for theatre. He has been a collaborator with the theatre group Forced Entertainment since a long time and many of his solo projects fed into music for their performances. John's work has been described as a juxtaposition of melody and noise and is characterised by a sense of narrative. "Nighthawks" forms part of a soundtrack written and recorded for a theatre piece entitled "Nighthawks" by Forced Entertainment Theatre Co-operative. The show was their fourth project when the album was released, and the second to include specially written music by John Avery. "Nighthawks" itself is set in a lonely American bar, it works in a highly visual style using performance, light set and soundtrack to explore ideas about romance, travel and sexuality. The original album, which was released by the now defunct label Final Image in 1985, has been carefully remastered and previously unreleased bonus music has been added. John Avery also used to be a member of Sheffield electro funk group Hula.
