OneTrackMinds - Hidden Tacks (14 Jan 2019)


I have been invited to tell a story at OneTrackMinds - Hidden Tracks.

An entertaining cross between Desert Island Discs, The Moth Radio Hour & TED Talks, OneTrackMinds is a live storytelling event which explores the transformative power of music. There are a vibrant selection of writers, thinkers and musicians (I am none of these!) each presenting a thought-provoking story about how music inspires the way we live our lives.

It is a great night out, with some brilliant stories and music. Oh, and you will get to hear me talk about a piece of music the deeply affected my life (it is a quite an unexpected song).

If you are interested in coming along then the details are below: 

 Date: Monday 14 January

Time: from 7pm (finishes around 10pm)

Venue: OMEARA, 6 O'Meara St, London SE1 1TE (the venue is gorgeous!)




The Exorcism by Ross Sutherland - trailer released

The Vatican believes that the best way to understand a haunting is to approach it as one would a work of art. A haunted house, therefore, is a kind of 'art happening', a curation of demonic sculpture, sound-art, avant-garde poetry, etc. The role of the exorcist, therefore, is simple: we must be the most vicious art critic imaginable. The exorcist is the red pen of God...

A brand new ghost story from the team who created the Award Winning Stand By For Tape Back-Up and writer of BBC2's Missing Episode. 

Sutherland is one of the most exciting artists around, endlessly inventive, a true adventurer in form

Post-Truth: How We Have Reached Peak Bullshit and What We Can Do About It

Over the past few years, the concept of ‘post-truth’ has been attracting increasing attention in both scholarly and journalistic circles. It is, of course, primarily associated with the success of Donald Trump as well as with the UK Brexit referendum campaign. As a result, it is no coincidence that ‘post-truth’ was chosen by Oxford Dictionaries as the ‘Word of the Year’ in 2016 nor surprising that there has been a proliferation of books on the subject (of which, publications by James Ball, Matthew d’Anconaor Julian Baggini are perhaps the most notable). While someone with an interest in post-truth might find it difficult to choose a worthwhile read, if one was to select just one book out of those currently available, Evan Davis’s Post-Truthwould undisputedly top the list

Post-Truth Apocalypse

One way to explore the concept of the ever proliferative Post-Truth is to read Evan Davis' new book or, and probably a more exciting way, is to get along to Francesca Beard's show How To Survive a Post Truth Apocalype it is still touring the UK and is coming to London next week.
