As if you weren’t excited enough about Interrobang already! Well, to fill that excitement up to the brim here is one more round of highlights from TOMORROW’S festival!
In The Dark Radio
In The Dark is the kind of project we all wish we started. A collaborative effort between radio producers, spoken word artists, sound designers and audio enthusiasts with the sole goal of elevating spoken word radio out of its traditional, and sometimes antiquated, setting and transforming it a thousand new and exciting things. For Interrobang, we are joined by Nina Garthwaite, In The Dark founder, who will be bringing along their mobile library! We will be graced with the finest selection of spoken word and sonic art vinyls, CDs, cassettes and MP3’s for you to peruse at your leisure.
The Listening Library will be open from 12.30-4 AND Nina Garthwaite will be giving a talk on the history of spoken word radio at 3pm
