On the Invisible Picture Palace website, they call the space a record store and listening space, though if it reminds you of either of these it is only in passing. What In The Dark Radio, the group behind the project, has created is something really quite unique. Housed in a greenhouse on the front lawn of The Wapping Project (a converted hydraulic power station), the Invisible Picture Palace is at first glance a shrine to the history of recorded sound. Old vinyl records hang from the walls and there’s a large container of cassette tapes on the floor. After sifting through the various shelves of audio ephemera you start to realise something else is going on here. This is quickly proved by the various talks and workshops taking place within the space. Instead of just being an homage to the past, the Invisible Picture Palace is also a wellspring of creativity for the future of innovative and experimental audio.

We love working at Annexe HQ, but of course we love the weekend too. That’s a given, sure. What we especially love is having a great song or story to listen to as we while away the weekend hours. We like to imagine that you enjoy that too, and so for your listening pleasure we are proud to present the latest spoken word mixtape.

Two weeks ago, we had a little spoken word night. If you came along, you’ll remember just how arresting our performers were. If not, we’ve decided to let you in on a little of what went on. After the jump you can hear one snippet from each of the spoken word performers from Annexe Presents… Et Al. (7th June). Enjoy!

Using the descriptive language of fairy-tales, Campbell conjures up the possible future of a very real and very violent present. It’s a future that could well be a fairy-tale and thus it comes to the reader as a story told before bedtime of distant lands with mystical creatures. A place that can exist if only you believe in it hard enough. Each stanza, made up of three lines, feels like a sigh for the potential peace that the writer longs for.
Siobhán Campbell is a Dublin-born writer living in London. For more about her and her poetry, jump here.
The poem is read by Christopher Delaney.
Finally, our third Mixtape is ready for your aural consumption. It’s taken a while, but only because we’ve been scheming and planning all sorts of other delights for you. Like this.
Our first ever literary event takes place on Tuesday 18th of October. If you’re London-bound you should come along. We’ve got fantastic guest writers and poets, Instant Theatre and you can also get the first three spoken word mixtapes on CD, in a hand-made, limited edition slipcase, absolutely free!
So, back to the mixtape:
Full tracklist after the jump.
