Some Summer listening , speaking with author and comedian Rosie Wilby about her book The Breakup Monologues. While we discuss her process we muse about the contrast between a performance and the sounds of the city as you journey home , sounds of childhood ( in this case endless Wagnerian opera) and hear the tap tap, tap of Dolly the dogs’ feet, as she walks about Rosies home .
Rosie and I met a while ago when Madam cellist Sarah Gill and I played at her night Femmes by the Thames, at the legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
That was a very magical night with the tiny backstage area full of sequins and tutus .
We play music by Kate Bush , Fleetwood Mac and talk about words and sounds conjuring vivid imagery perfectly illustrating the concept of SOUNDVISION. Yes!
