Mood Shifts: A Sonic Repertoire

Mary Cappello performs a multi-modal reading from her latest collection of essays and experimental prose.


“Sounds touch me, and mood is the window of allowance, wide or narrow, to let sound in: my moods are equivalent to what I let myself touch, and be touched by in turn, but also what I have no choice in the matter of being encased in…”

Is it possible to create a poetics of atmosphere as antidote to post-election and post-Brexit airlessness, moodlessness, and disrepair? Mary Cappello performs a multi-modal reading from her latest collection of essays and experimental prose, Life Breaks In (a mood almanack) with emphasis on sounds and voices as mood generators par excellence. Expect images, music, discussion and unnamed mood shifts. Books will be available for sale (cash only).

This event is part of a series on mood, science fiction and the supernatural organised by Queen Mary Centre for the History of the Emotions.
