Please join us on Wednesday 8 June, 6-8pm for celebratory drinks at the launch of Real Life by Amelia Barratt, edited and produced by Charles Asprey.
Real Life brings together ten spoken performance works (2018-2021) by Amelia Barratt, published here for the first time in print and audio.
Written to be heard, this collection reflects the integral relationship between sound and text in Barratt's work. The artist's readings, which were mastered at Abbey Road Studios, are sampled inside on flexi disc and via a dedicated online site. This book includes newly commissioned essays by Isobel Harbison and Holly Pester, with a forward by Alvaro Barrington.
"This form of writing is pumped from the bilges, pulled up by the roots."
